Charcot Foot & Peripheral Neuropathy - 1.0CE This is a downloadable video. We will send you a link for the download shortly after receiving your payment. A red, hot, swollen foot can mean a lot of things, but if the patient has diabetic neuropathy, these may be the first signs of Charcot foot. Charcot foot occurs as a consequence of various peripheral neuropathies, however, diabetic neuropathy is diagnosed most commonly. It will ultimately lead to the weakening of bones, which will cause the foot to collapse to create pressure points leading to ulcerations. As foot care nurses, it is our duty to be alert to all possibilities when conducting a patient assessment, in order to detect potential risk factors that could lead to a lifelong deformity and pain. As a foot care nurse, you'll become closely acquainted with peripheral neuropathy and its risk factors. Because it is so common, we frequently think of peripheral neuropathy as being directly associated with diabetes. However, risk factors for peripheral neuropathy include diabetes and alcoholism, but can also be signs of other underlying conditions such as vitamin deficiency, autoimmune disorders, viral infections and hereditary conditions. In this video, we'll talk about completing neurological assessments using sensory, reflex, and proprioception tools. When you've watched this videos, you'll be comfortable in your understanding regarding various types of neuropathy testing such as EMGs, Semmes-Weinstein and tuning forks. We'll also talk about the efficacy of over the counter supplements you can recommend as a nurse, such as vitamin D3, B12 and Alpha Lipoic Acid. Dr. Julia will talk about the research that supports or denies the claims of such common OTC meds, and will provide examples of supplements that can help patients who are experiencing neuropathy associated with certain types of conditions.

A GREAT Textbook for Foot Care Nurses!


Art & Science of Nursing Foot Care
A Clinical Resource for Nurses

The 
FIRST multi-authored, peer-reviewed textbook, and is currently the #1 textbook.


The Art and Science of Foot Care: A Clinical Resource for Nurses - authored by Cindy Lazenby RN is a much needed reference text for foot care nurses.

Each chapter has exercises and assignments that reinforce the content. Many key content areas for provision of nursing foot care are covered such as anatomy of the lower leg; foot and nail conditions; infection control; foot and ankle conditioning; footwear and orthotics; foot care and diabetes; and wound care. There are many illustrations and color pictures of foot and nail conditions throughout the text. The glossary is comprehensive and is a clear reference found at the end of the book. It is highlighted in light green, which makes it easy to find. The book concludes with appendices that include resources such as assessment tools.

There is a chapter dedicated to career opportunities in foot care and another chapter to nursing foot care practice with exercises related to mentorship, suppliers, and instruments. Another unique and interesting aspect of this text is inclusion of “Peer Perspectives”. This feature provides personal practice experiences from experienced foot health providers that relate to the adjacent content.
