Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Barbara Jean Billek-Sawhney, PT, EdD, MS, GCS (Slippery Rock University)
Description: This comprehensive book begins with basic science and includes wound examination, interventions, and the various types of wounds. The black-and-white book is complimented by 25 color glossy photos at the end of the book and a CD-ROM.
Purpose: According to the author, this book provides "entry-level, clinically relevant information appropriate for both practicing clinicians and students." These objectives are worthwhile and met by the author in her book.
Audience: The book is written for both practicing clinicians and students. It would be a valuable book for students in entry-level PT and PTA programs as well as experienced clinicians. The author has an entry-level MPT, a MHS, and has received her clinical specialization in orthopedics. The content of the book speaks for itself and it is comprehensive, well written, and well organized.
Features: The book is divided into three sections. The first covers the basic science and includes a review of integumentary anatomy, wound healing, and factors affecting wound healing. The second section focuses on the physical therapist's examination of wounds and various interventions including debridement, dressings, modalities, and management of infections. The third section provides detailed information on the major types of wounds, i.e., arterial, venous, pressure, and neuropathic. The book is unique in that it also includes burns, miscellaneous wounds such as surgical wounds, skin tears, abrasions, etc, and basic dermatology. A valuable appendix complements the text with case studies and answers to checkpoint and chapter review questions. In addition, a CD-ROM with additional information and numerous images is included. The images on the CD-ROM are excellent; the only flaw evident to me are typographical errors on the CD-ROM.
Assessment: Although there are other good books on the market in the area of wound care, this is a valuable addition for experienced clinicians, entry-level PT and PTA students, and educators. Each chapter has learning objectives with key terms, checkpoint questions to increase active learning, valuable tables and figures as well as review questions. Answers to the various questions in the chapter are in the appendix. The images on the CD-ROM provide a valuable adjunct to the book covering the different types of wounds, burns, and miscellaneous wounds such as radiation burns, skin tears, surgical wounds, and traumatic wounds.
