Compression Therapy Management Options: An Art and Science
DescriptionCompression therapy improves the rate of ulcer healing, reduces the incidence of recurrence, and prolongs the interval to a first recurrence. Studies have shown that venous ulcers that demonstrate healing after 4 weeks of compression therapy are likely to be completely healed by 24 weeks. In contrast, venous ulcers that don’t show healing after 4 weeks of compression therapy tend to remain problematic. This educational webinar will assist the practitioner in exploring the compression therapy management options for the venous ulcer patient.
