Overview

This exciting new text by Dr. Michael Strauss optimizes the evaluation, management, and prevention of wounds. MasterMinding Wounds is organized into five parts, each integral to wound care, yet comprehensive enough to stand alone:

I. Setting the stage (for wound care)
II. Evaluation of wounds
III. The strategic management of problem wounds
IV. Evaluation and management of the "end-stage" wound
V. Prevention of new and recurrent wounds

The special features of this text include the use of a Master Algorithm to integrate and logically transition information, as well as a user friendly "Power of 10" scoring tool to objectively quantify wound seriousness, guide treatment, measure progress, predict potential for wound development, and assess patient function and motivation.

The appendix includes:
• Wound topics from A to Z with text references to supplement discussion questions at the end of each chapter
• Copies of the Master Algorithm, scoring, assessments, and data recording systems
• Listing of and comments about wound care guidelines/position papers, journals, and organizations, plus the authors' own experiences (over 35 cited publications and 36 poster/podium presentations)
• Discussion of the pros and cons involving the multidisciplinary approach to wound care

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David J. Dries, MD (University of Minnesota Medical School)
Description: This multiauthored book describes wound biology, evaluation, and management.
Purpose: The authors carefully incorporate basic science work that has been done in wound management into a user-friendly, integrated, and visual approach to this subject.
Audience: Physicians and other wound care professionals are an appropriate audience for this book, which originates from the diabetic foot committee of the American Foot and Ankle Society and presented at the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons.
Features: The authors present common wound problems with an emphasis on extremity complications of diabetes. A wound classification system is then presented and a wound score proposed and compared to previous work in this area. A third group of chapters describe wound dressings and initial wound preparation. A brief discussion of hyperbaric oxygen therapy is also provided. Concluding chapters discuss prevention strategies. Again, the diabetic foot and chronic extremity wounds are emphasized. Appendixes summarize the authors' wound care approach and provide an excellent list of primary and secondary literature along with websites. The two concluding appendixes provide an overview of wound clinic development. Chapters are clearly written and make excellent use of multicolor line drawings and tables. Color photographs also reproduce with good quality.
Assessment: Despite an obvious extremity bias, this book provides excellent insight into wound evaluation, management, and prevention. Chapters on strategies for wound prevention are an excellent expansion on the biology emphasized in other wound texts.
