MALVERN, Pa. – (Business Wire) Proper wound care management has become one of the top concerns for many clinicians across various medical specialties. Treatment is specific to the wound type, the patient and the long-term care plan and requires ongoing assessment. The Scottsdale Wound Management Guide handbook is quickly becoming an essential tool for clinicians in the field of wound care, selling more than 10,000 copies in its first month of publication. Unique to the handbook is its layout that provides differential diagnosis, wound assessment, wound treatments segmented by etiology, treatment guidelines, studies and procedures.
“The Scottsdale Wound Management Guide handbook is for nurses and doctors who want to take their understanding of wound care to the next level,” says author Matthew Livingston, RN, BSN, CWS, CHRN, who works in the Scottsdale medical community, and developed the handbook based on a need he saw in the marketplace. Measuring just 5” x 7”, the handbook is a comprehensive text for wound care management. “As a nurse, I need information at my fingertips; that’s the idea behind the Scottsdale Wound Management Guide. It covers an extensive amount of material in a clear, concise layout that I can keep in my lab coat.”
Scottsdale surgeon Tom Wolvos, MS, MD, FACS, edited the guide. “Differentiating treatment options by wound type is a helpful feature of our handbook. The role of advanced technologies in wound care is also discussed. Quality wound management gives the patient the best chance to heal their wound, in the shortest time possible.”
The Scottsdale Wound Management Guide was launched in April at the Symposium on Advanced Wound Care and the Wound Healing Society (SAWC/WHS) 2009 Spring Meeting, the largest gathering of multidisciplinary wound care specialists in the U.S. This year’s event hosted the highest attendance to date since it launched more than 20 years ago.
“The handbook was enthusiastically received,” says Jeremy Bowden, Vice President, Group Publisher of HMP’s Wound Care Division. “It is a valuable resource for wound based test preparation and covers innovative treatment options including hyperbaric oxygen wound protocols, products, dressings and systems that have had treatment success.”
Bowden acknowledged interest in bulk orders of the Scottsdale Wound Management Guide handbook from wound care manufacturers. “Educational resources such as this are well within the new AdvaMed guidelines. This resource is a very cost effective way for sales representatives to educate new wound care clinicians.”
