Comprehensive Management of the Patient with Venous Disease

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The care of patients with chronic venous insufficiency and venous ulcers requires a team approach that provides both medical and surgical treatment. This session will focus on the medical management of patients with venous disease, including compression therapy to control edema, exercise to enhance calf muscle pump function, and venoactive supplements/medications to enhance venous tone, decrease inflammation, and improve fibrinolysis and blood rheology. Topical agents used to enhance healing will be discussed, as well as topical medications to treat associated skin problems, including stasis dermatitis.

This continuing nursing education activity awards up to 0.25 pharmacology hours.
