Description

Geared specifically to LPNs/LVNs, this quick-reference pocket guide covers wound care principles, wound care procedures and products, and wound prevention and assessment. Information is presented in the easy-to-follow style that characterizes all LPN Expert Guides, with numerous illustrations and tables to clarify and amplify the text.
