Mastering the Three Ring Circus of Risk: Infection, Ischemia and Tissue Loss

We at SALSA are constantly working to refine what we’d like to see as a therapeutic lingua Franca.

Once a patient has a wound or has healed a wound, one might consider this flexible approach to management and assessment.

Where does this patient’s biggest problem lie? Infection? Ischemia? Tissue Loss? Combinations?

This chart is designed not to be static, but rather dynamic. Three intersecting rings jockeying for dominance. The Ringmaster of this circus?

The team, of course.
