WOCN Conference 2017


W408 - The Lymphedema Challenge: CVI, Lymphedema, or Phlebolymphedema?


Standard: $5.00

Description

The lymphatic contribution to wound development and wound treatment is currently a practice gap that is poorly recognized. Venous wounds and lymphedema are too often viewed as distinct clinical entities, when in fact they are often closely entwined. Most venous insufficiency patients have a true lymphatic insufficiency as well. When the wound specialist is able to recognize the lymphatic impairment in wound patients then wound specialist can add the successful principles of the lymphedema approach to improve wound care outcomes.
