"This book is a user-friendly, real-world guide to assessing and managing any type of wound. The author presents vital information for nurses and nursing students who provide wound care in any setting...a wonderful resource for nurses."--The AORN Journal (Association of Perioperative Registered Nurses)

"Wound care is arguably the single most difficult topic in medicine. It has no defined solution like insulin for the easy strategy that covers all wounds...we are so tremendously blessed when [a wound care specialist] like Zelia carves out time to capture a career of experiences in text so that it can be shared with others. We are indebted to her for making this important contribution to the clinician's armament for dealing with [the] difficult-to-heal wounds of their patients."
