February is Heart Health Awareness Month for Uintah Basin Healthcare
By Kristin Forbis, Feb 25, 2020
It might seem weird to talk about wound care when it is Heart Health Awareness month but Uintah Basin Healthcare has done just that. In a recent post to the UBH Facebook page, they talk about venous ulcers and arterial ulcers. What do these painful ulcers have to do with heart health? Foot and leg ulcers often occur because of a heart or vascular condition. When lower extremity ulcers present themselves a careful vascular assessment is crucial. And for your information, compression therapy is the cornerstone to venous ulcer management. Learn more about February Heart Health Awareness on the Uintah Basin Healthcare Facebook page.
