Peripheral Vascular Disease, Poor Circulation in the Foot

Peripheral arterial disease is a condition when not enough blood flow reaches the foot.  The blood circulation to the foot is the most important vital sign.  It is the determining factor of whether wounds, infections and surgeries can heal, or become worse and gangrenous.  Smokers and diabetics are at risk for poor circulation, as well as the elderly.  For more information, please click this link.
