Preventing The Preventable In The Global Fight Against Diabetic Foot Ulcers & Amputations
Watch Dr. Katia Langton's presentation at the 3rd Summit of the Americas Diabetic Foot where she covers preventing the destruction of the diabetic foot: IDF clinical practice recommendations and guidelines on protecting the diabetic foot.
In this training, Katia Langton covers the three categories diabetic wounds fall into: neuropathic, ischemic, and neuroischemic. Knowing the distinct features of each wound category is essential to identifying wound progression, infection, and healing.
Failure to properly identify the type of wound that exists can lead to an ineffective diabetic wound treatment plan, causing long-term complications or amputation.
