Pressure Ulcer 1: Heel Ulcers

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

Due to the biomechanics and its structure, the heel represents the second most common site for pressure ulcer development. Heel ulcers are costly and, if not treated promptly and properly, may lead to osteomyelitis and even limb amputation. This session will describe the most recent data on how to assess patients for risk and will provide strategies for the prevention and management of heel ulcers.
