Published by the National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel

NPUAP - 2007

This staging system should be used only to describe pressure ulcers. Wounds from other causes, such as arterial, venous, diabetic foot, skin tears, tape burns, perineal dermatitis, maceration or excoriation should not be staged using this system. Other staging systems exist for some of these conditions and should be used instead.
