It is important to be able to differentiate lower extremity wounds in order to provide clinically appropriate interventions. Understanding the underlying etiology of these wounds is an essential component of a comprehensive assessment. It helps in the identification of systemic factors that contribute to wound development and impact wound healing. It also helps provide an understanding of the healing potential and informs treatment choices. Learn how your facility can make informed choices when treating Lower Extremity Wounds.
