Energy First: Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) in the Treatment of Diabetic Foot Ulcers.

This event is free of charge and approved for 1 CE/CME/CECH credit hour for DPMs, Nurses and Physicians.

This webinar will review ESWT, specifically, Pulsed Acoustic Cellular Expression in the treatment of diabetic foot ulcers. Pulsed Acoustic Cellular Expression is unique in that it provides focused high energy at the tissue and cellular levels and reestablishes the body’s natural healing.

Lecture Objectives:
1. Define Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) and differentiate between types of shockwaves (i.e. electrohydraulic, electromagnetic, and piezoelectric).
2. Discuss how a type of ESWT, Pulsed Acoustic Cellular Expression Technology interacts with the tissue and at the cellular level to trigger a healing response.
3. Describe the mechanism of action focused Pulsed Acoustic Cellular Expression Technology elicits in wound healing.
4. Review clinical studies and real-life cases to demonstrate efficacy of focused Pulsed Acoustic Cellular Expression Technology in relation to standard of care (SOC) in the treatment of Diabetic Foot Ulcers.

Managing Highly Exudating Wounds can be Challenging During the COVID-19 Pandemic – practice session

This event is free of charge and approved for 1 CECH credit hour for DPMs.

Managing wounds with moderate to high amounts of exudate can be challenging, even under the best of circumstances. The COVID-19 pandemic has made caring for patients with such wounds all the more difficult, as these patients tend to have comorbidities that make them susceptible to developing serious complications from the coronavirus. For this reason, clinicians are interested in options for their patients’ wound care needs, as patients are less incline to visit their wound care clinician during the COVID-19 pandemic. This is where a Superabsorbent Dressing can help.


Lecture Objectives:

1. Understand the concerns of excessive exudate in chronic wounds
2. Discuss different options of managing your patients’ wound care needs during the COVID-19 pandemic
3. Describe Superabsorbent Polymers (SAP), their advantages and how they can help your patient
