Taking the Pressure Off the Patients

February 17, 2009 6:06 am | Product Releases | Comments

Pressure ulcers or decubitus ulcers in patients can occur when the pressure on the skin and soft tissue, typically at a boney prominence, exceeds the capillary blood pressure and blood flow stops. After about two hours, tissue necrosis begins to set in. When this happens, a sore starts to develop. This can pose a serious danger to any surgical patients, but especially those undergoing longer procedures.
