Peripheral Artery Disease vs Peripheral Vascular Disease are two main difference ARtery and Venous- Since arteries are acute PAD has more acute issues than PVD. In this study I cover the differences between them.
Though not covered in my class since it doesn't necessary kill the patient as this is usually positioned in the first medical surgical class. Still important to know as it is a Highly Tested Area and should be studied for school and the NCLEX.
