After a review of wound etiology, wound appearance and wound dressing options, this video will take a deep dive into a range of patient case studies.


Wound Etiology
In this section, we'll discuss wound etiology in the context of foot care. The patient wounds you'll see as a basic foot care provider will generally fall into one of three categories: arterial, venous and neuropathic. Understanding the reasons behind the wound will help you to make the most appropriate assessment for wound care.

Wound Appearance
Many of our patients will have multiple comorbidities, so it's critical for foot care providers to assess the patient's condition based on a clinical assessment of the sizes, shapes and locations of wounds. Understanding the most common wounds for venous and non-venous conditions will help you to determine when to send your patient for an additional checkups and who to best refer them to.

Wound Dressings
There are a range of dressings and wound care methods available, and being able to provide the right treatment the first time will depend on your knowledge of the type of wound you're dealing with. In this section, we'll complete a refresher on primary wound dressing and secondary wound dressings, and the goal of each type of dressing.

Patient Case Studies
The bulk of the video will be comprised of examining various cases of real patients who have experienced foot and leg wounds and been in Dr. Overstreet's care. We'll identify slough, necrotic tissue, infected tissue, granulating tissue and epithelializing tissue, and provide ample real-life examples of each.

For each care study, you'll learn about the cause of the wound, the treatment the patient was receiving at the time of first visit, the workup he received in the wound clinic. To help you become familiar with the examination process, Dr. Julia will detail every step of the patient's workup, with in-depth explanations for why the step was taken and what the resulting assessment was.
Finally, you'll learn which dressing was used; why and how. Each case study also includes several post-treatment pictures and additional procedures the patient underwent while in the care of Dr. Overstreet.
