Comprehensive Diabetic Foot Examination (CDFE): Video and Text

We get constant emails regarding recommendations on risk assessment and how to perform a “Comprehensive Diabetic Foot Exam” (CDFE). To that end, we post the American Diabetes Association’s CDFE published in Diabetes Care for free download here.

We also post some video that we did following workshops in Australia and Taiwan. Here we provide methods for use of the Semmes Weinstein 10 gram monofilament, the biothesiometer (Vibration Perception Threshold), and a Doppler and blood pressure cuff for performing the Ankle Brachial Index (ABI) measurement. Enjoy.
