Edema & Lymphedema in Foot Care - 1.5 CEs

Many of our patients are affected by lower extremity swelling, but edema and lymphedema are unique to each patient. More often than not, elevation simply isn't enough, and as foot care nurses our understanding of edema and lymphedema is critical so we can develop better protocols for our practice.

There are a wide range of clinical causes for edema, whether the root of the problem is systemic or localized. Here, we'll discuss the differentiating factors between edema and lymphedema, and how to identify the various types of swelling using the patient's history, taking pitting measurements and more.

Edema needs to be treated. As a foot care nurse, you'll be able to make recommendations to your patients, such as diet changes, compression therapy and elevation. To make the best assessments, it's also crucial that you know your patients' med list; we'll cover a variety of drugs that cause leg edema, such as calcium channel blockers and Estrogen, pieces of knowledge that will help us to quickly determine when we should speak to the primary care physician to discuss changes in treatment.

In cases where medication adjustments, a cardiac and renal workup or an ultrasound might be beneficial, you'll be able to provide a direct link between patient and doctor, something that will be hugely beneficial to your patient.
