This program is a MUST for any health care provider caring for patients with chronic lower extremity edema...Reserve Your Spot Now!*
Description
There are over 30 forms of medically complex edema, several etiologies of which create lower extremity swelling and chronic wounds. In the Western world phlebolymphedema, a mixed-etiology of swelling due to chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) and lymphatic insufficiency, is a common form of chronic edema seen in clinical practice. Unfortunately, most health care providers have very little formal training on the recognition, assessment, diagnosis and treatment of various edemas leading to lower extremity integumentary complications.
This program will provide the health care professional with up-to-date clinical information on the interrelationship of the vascular systems (arterial, venous and lymphatic) and the pathophysiology of phlebolymphedema, as well as proper diagnosis and treatment interventions. Consider attending this program to add appropriate diagnosis and care of people with venous insufficiency, phlebolymphedema and lymphedema to your clinical practice. Included in the session will be hands-on training and practice for lower extremity compression bandaging with appropriate compression forces. *Program registration limited to 100 participants, so register early.
