Free iPhone app aids in wound managementAvailable for free on iTunes/iStore, a new app helps clinicians assess wounds and advise on dressing choices as well as providing information on how to efficiently dress wounds.

The Cutimed wound assessment app (BSN medical) uses bold images to help evaluate tissue type, wound depth and exudate level. It also includes instructions on dressing awkward parts of the body, ie elbows, fingertips. The dressing icons on the app match symbols on the back of dressing packaging to make identifying products easier.

'Practices and training techniques in healthcare are changing as fast as the technology does.  We are delighted to launch this new app and lead the way on wound care training and education for the i-generation and iPhone/iPad users,' said Julie Cummings, BSN medical Wound Care Product Manager. 'We are passionate about making wound care easier for nurses, ensuring patients' needs are met and helping to prevent product misuse.'

The new app is the latest of the Cutimed wound bed assessment tools to be released. These tools also include pocket-sized wound assessment guides, simple assessment reporting sheets, interactive dice for practical training as well as a wound assessment training module, which will be released in the near future.
