Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
This textbook offers instruction on developing rational plans of care for a variety of chronic and acute wounds, including pressure ulcers, neo-orpathic ulcers, vascular ulcers, and burn injuries. Organized to reflect the flow of treatment, coverage includes taking histories, physical examinations, special tests, diagnosis, prognosis, and intervention. Specific sections focus on the integumentary system, normal and abnormal healing, examination of the patient, examination of the wound, and documentation. Chapters also discuss each type of intervention and administrative issues. Color photographs and line drawing support the narrative descriptions. Irion teaches at the University of South Alabama.

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Mary Jo Geyer, PhD, PT, CWS (University of Pittsburgh)
Description: This is a concise, yet comprehensive, well-written book on wound management primarily for entry-level students in physical therapy.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a cohesive, patient-centered, systematic approach to wound management based on a thorough understanding of normal and abnormal physiology, patient factors, and wound etiology leading to the development of a rational plan of care based on this understanding. These objectives are worthy and the author is highly successful in achieving his objectives.
Audience: The primary target audience is entry-level physical therapy students. Clinicians interested in specialization in wound management and instructors from other disciplines would also benefit from its use. Although the author is not well known nationally, his credentials, teaching experience, and the quality of his work sufffice as evidence of his credibility and authority to complete this work.
Features: Topics cover a wide range of contemporary treatment issues and cutting-edge interventions with additional information on documentation and administrative concerns. Unfortunately, neither the abbreviated table of contents nor the chapter objectives reflect the wealth of information contained in this concise and well-written book. Some illustration content and print quality need improvement. As with all books, the time lag inherent in the publishing process prevents inclusion of the most current references. In each chapter, inclusion of suggestions for further reading, additional references (both classic texts and journal articles) and web-based resources would strengthen the content. The companion instructor's manual is definitely worth investigating and may address some of these issues. The fact that the book closely follows the Curriculum Content Guidelines for Wound Management recently completed by the Wound Management Special Interest Group of the APTA's Section on Clinical Electrophysiology adds to its value.
Assessment: The author has chosen an organizational schema that places topics commonly included in comparable books (see below) in a patient-focused, logical order that is complemented by the continuity and focus that only a sole author can provide. For this ambitious effort, he is to be commended. Existing books, while benefiting from the expertise of the contributing authors, are generally limited in this respect. This book succeeds in providing a systematic understanding of tissue integrity management from a holistic perspective while adhering to the APTA Guide to Physical Therapist Practice. There is ample evidence throughout of the author's extensive background in physiology that strengthens every aspect of the book. In comparable books, such depth is not integrated into case studies or presented as a basis for clinical decision-making because having different chapter authors limits the ability to explain or relate to information in other portions of the book. In other books, this information is frequently presented at an expert level requiring students to supply the rationale without referring to supporting material. The author's presentation of the material in a manner that enhances clinical decision-making is much appreciated for those instructors who must teach this material before students are exposed to patients in clinical situations. With supplemental references, illustrations, and color photos this book is recommended highly for physical therapy classroom adoption and would be helpful for any person seeking certification as a wound specialist. Comparable books: Wound Healing: Alternatives in Management, 3rd Edition, by Kloth et al. (F.A. Davis, 2002). Clinical Wound Management, by Gogia (Slack, 1995). Wound Care: A Collaborative Practice Manual for Physical Therapists and Nurses, 2nd Edition, by Sussman et al. (Aspen Publishers, 2001). Chronic Wound Care: Clinical Source Book for Healthcare Professionals, 3rd Edition, by Krasner et al. (Health Management Publishers, 2001)
