Wound / Ostomy / Continence Nursing

The care of wounds, ostomies and continence care is a special calling. Many patients will not discuss such personal issues with just any healthcare team member. So, in addition to providing physical care, there are also emotional issues for these patients. Numerous areas of patient care utilize hyperbaric therapy including patients receiving Wound Care treatment. Join us as we discuss indications, contraindications, side effects, and treatment protocols as they relate to Wound and Hyperbaric Nursing care.
