I'm Mel Hankins and have been a nurse for over 20 years. I am Wound-care Certified, accurate staging with pressure injuries is one of the struggles I see everyday. The Stage Gauge is both easy and accurate,  Open  the App, choose just by tapping the picture! Look at your patients wound and compare it to the app,  Choose Primary (greatest percentage of tissue) then you will choose primary tissue color, next will be a list of variables, read through them carefully, when you choose the variable, you will get the answer based on NPUAP Guidlines for Pressure Injury Staging  2016  At any time you can access on the App all stages from the NPUAP for reference.      .
