Surgical Dressings and Wound Management synopsis
In the past few decades, our growing knowledge of the mechanisms involved in wound repair has stimulated the development of many new dressings and wound management techniques. If it is to be used in a more cost-effective and appropriate manner, practitioners must have a good understanding of the characteristics of core functions and key functions.
This book has been produced to provide specific guidance in this important area, including chapters on silver bandages, honey products, medicinal larvae and negative pressure therapy as well as more traditional products including hydrocolloids, foam, films and bandages made of alginate or CMC. Each chapter contains an account of the historical development and structure and method of use of individual treatments, all of which are supplemented by a comprehensive review of the clinical literature of each product group.
The last chapter presents some simple observations on the principles of clothing selection by referring to a variety of different wound types. This section also explains how the use of improper treatment may cause significant problems for the patient and his / her caregivers.
The book contains 720 pages and 125 illustrations, much in full color, making it the most comprehensive reference of its kind available now.
