Summary
This handbook helps practitioners choose the proper skin and wound care products to facilitate healing based on the classification of the wound and skin condition. Arranged by generic categories, each one- page entry lists the size and configuration of a specific commercial product, the action, indications, contraindications, and instructions for application and removal. Spiral binding. The fifth edition adds products new on the market and an antimicrobial dressing category. Annotation : 2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
