Edema Evolution: What Every Healthcare Provider MUST Know
Although there are over 30 forms of medically complex edema, not all swelling is equal. It is vital to understand the relationship between the arterial, venous, lymphatic, and integumentary systems to be clinically relevant with differential diagnosis and care planning for edema management. This program will provide the health care provider with foundational knowledge and clinical skills that can be immediately implemented into clinical practice.
NOTE: This program is appropriate for you to attend, even if you attended the 2016 program. Content will build on the foundation of Demystifying Chronic Edema from 2016 while articulating new findings, research, clinical practices.
At the end of this program participants will be able to:
- Identify the relationship between the arterial, venous, lymphatic and integumentary systems.
- Describe the pathophysiology and differential diagnosis between various edemas.
- Distinguish typical skin changes associated with various edemas.
- Recognize various comorbidities (e.g. CHF) that complicate the medical management of patients with edema.
- Recommend best practice interventions for edema etiologies (venous insufficiency, lymphedema, phlebolymphedema, and lipedema).
- Participate in “hands-on” manual lymph drainage, compression, and exercise labs.
- Participate in case-based problem solving.
