Atypical wounds are challenging clinical care events since their identification may initially be obscured. This session will focus on three clinical conditions, heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT) syndrome necrosis, Coumadin necrosis, and Necrobiosis Lipoidica. Epidemiology, pathophysiology, risk factors, clinical presentation, medical/surgical/nursing therapies and pharmacotherapy will be targeted.
Describe epidemiology, pathophysiology, and risk factors of HIT, CN and NL
Delineate clinical presentation, medical, surgical, nursing therapies for HIT, CN, and NL
Explain common pharmacological approaches included in therapy of HIT, CN, and NL
