From the reviews:
"This is a useful and unique contribution to a neglected area. ... This ... volume succeeds in its aim of providing 'a clearer understanding of the mechanisms associated with the aetiology of pressure ulcers and to identify the risk levels of individuals'. Surgeons with a pressure sore and wound-healing interest will find a useful reference ... . I would certainly want to have this on my medical bookshelf." (Chris Khoo, Annals of the Royal College of Surgeons, Vol. 89, 2007)
"The present book gives current data on all aspects of the medical problem ... and current nursing practices for the management of pressure sores. ... this book is mainly dedicated to the basic fundamental sciences applied to the pressure sore. Links between basic sciences and clinical applications are clearly present in order to help the clinician to manage patients in a better way. ... In conclusion, this book is interesting for those ... interested in the understanding of pressure sore genesis, analysis, prevention and treatment." (O. Heymans, Acta Chirurgica Belgica, Vol. 106 (1), 2006)
