It is with profound sadness to announce that within hours of Version 2 of the Scottsdale Wound Management Guide going to print, Mathew Livingston suddenly and unexpectedly passed away. He was extremely proud of this 2nd Version. Matthew said “I don’t think there is anything else out there that is so comprehensive and contains so much up-to-date, clinically relevant information” He loved and is survived by his wife Laura and daughters Caroline and Elizabeth. He will be missed by the wound care community and all others whom he got to know over the years.

Clinicians Say...

“This guide is comprehensive, easy-to-read and the perfect size to carry with us.”

A. Murray Corliss, BSN, RN, CWOCN, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center

Scottsdale surgeon Tom Wolvos, MS, MD, FACS, edited the guide. "Differentiating treatment options by wound type is a helpful feature of our handbook. The role of advanced technologies in wound care is also discussed. Quality wound management gives the patient the best chance to heal their wound, in the shortest time possible."

The Scottsdale Wound Management Guide was showcased in April at the Symposium on Advanced Wound Care and the Wound Healing Society (SAWC/WHS) 2009 Spring Meeting, the largest gathering of multidisciplinary wound care specialists in the U.S. This year’s event hosted the highest attendance to date since it launched more than 20 years ago.

The handbook was enthusiastically received,” says Jeremy Bowden, Vice President, Group Publisher, of HMP’s Wound Care Division. “It is a valuable resource for wound based test preparation and covers innovative treatment options including hyperbaric oxygen wound protocols, products, dressings and systems that have had treatment success.”

Bowden acknowledged interest in bulk orders of the Scottsdale Wound Management Guide handbook from wound care manufacturers. "Educational resources such as this are well within the new AdvaMed guidelines. This resource is a very cost effective way for sales representatives to educate new wound care clinicians. "
