5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent reference December 27, 2008
Format:Spiral-bound|Verified Purchase
I work as a RN and clinic manager at an advanced wound care clinic and this is the book the docs told me to get when I first started. It covers everything you may need to know from how to identify the origin of the ulcer, best treatment and studies needed, products available and their uses and recommendations. If you pay attention, you will be an expert with wound care. After reading, it is an excellent referece to use to look up specific dressing recommendations for specific wounds. I highly recommend it.
