Heel Pressure Ulcer

Heel Pressure Ulcers will be presented by Donna Sardina RN, MHA, WCC, CWCMS, Co-Founder of WCEI in Las Vegas at this year’s Wild on Wounds National Conference this September 7-10-2011

What causes heel ulcers and how to prevent them. In this session we will discuss and differentiate the causes: Pressure, friction, arterial, diabetic, trauma, or dermatological. We look at the risk factors and some preventative measures we can incorporate in the daily care provided. Also discussed will be the complications we see, and effective treatment interventions.
