Treating lower-extremity wounds not only entails preventing infections and mitigating any patient pain or discomfort, but also the management of the underlying pathophysiology that caused them. That can be a challenge because patients may have comorbid conditions, which can be the cause of (especially chronic) wounds, hinder wound treatment, or both. An example of the such condition is Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD).
Comprehensive arterial assessment directly at your office or at the patient’s home can be a big time-saver. Having a chance to perform the Ankle-Brachial Index (ABI) and/or the Toe-Brachial Index (TBI) on one device enables effective screening for diseases like PAD and in timely referral for further vascular examination.
Podologist and wound care expert Véronique Labbe Gentils discusses the advantages of comprehensive arterial assessment in her daily hospital work.
The MESI device enables me to immediately assess the chances of recovery as I already have the ABI as well as the TBI calculated.
