    For those not familiar with this system, its based on PEDIS:
    P = perfusion
    E = extent or size
    D = depth or tissue loss
    I = infection
    S = sensation or neuropathy

    Infection has the following grades:
    Grade 1: no signs or symptoms of infection
    Grade 2: in subcutaneous tissue only
    Grade 3: extensive erythema, infection of deeper tissue
    Grade 4: systemic inflammatory response indicating severe infection

    The full guidelines are here: Diagnosis and Treatment of Diabetic Foot Infections
