The world of wound care is getting more complicated by the day. New products emerge almost weekly and further confuse the practitioner who is bombarded with ads and weekly visits from company representatives who tout the benefits of their particular collagen or foam.

In order to help you navigate the murky waters of this product sea, the students at the Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine have partnered with me to do a regular blog on WoundSource.com, which launches this month, explaining the features and benefits of many of the wound products you use or are considering for your patients. Each post will review the product the research and, if we have experience with the product, its particular clinical usefulness. Hopefully you will appreciate the work these fine young doctors to be put into this blog and will benefit from the information provided.

Keep an eye on the WoundSource blog for these posts starting next week!
