The Scottsdale Wound Management Guide: A Comprehensive Guide for the Wound Care Clinician by Matthew Livingston and Tom Wolvos is now in its third edition. The SWMG, available since 2009, continues to provide concise information for the newcomer to wound care as well as the seasoned veteran of wound management. It brings together valuable information for the wound practitioner that is rarely found in any other one place.

“I feel that the third edition of the Scottsdale Wound Management Guide continues the tradition of providing the wound care practitioner basic as well as advanced information about assessing and treating all types of wounds. As I have said before, it is a Guide that should be in every wound care practitioner’s library and/or pocket.” — Terry Treadwell, MD, FACS, the Senior Clinical Editor of WOUNDS.
