Advances in Wound CareVolume 1
Edited by Richard White
This book has a strong focus on chronic wounds and their microbiology. The first section, on aspects of leg ulceration, oedema and stoma care, includes such topics as cellulitus, topical steroids, pulse oximetry, as well as recent best practice guidelines for management and the role of nutrition in ulcer prevention - two areas of interest for all involved in pressure ulcer care. The causes of oedema and stoma-related skin complications are also covered.
The chapters in section II on wound pain and palliative care, are written with the community-based practitioned in mind. Wound-related pain and criteria for fluid (exudate) handline of wound treatments are also presented.
In the final section, scientific developments from research and new thinking are proposed with a review of biofilms and postulated mechanisms of critical colonisation.
