Pressure Injury Prevention from Head to Foot
Patients who are immobile for prolonged periods such as with sedated patients who are on mechanical ventilation or patients recovering from surgical procedures or when turning the patient is not an option, are at risk for pressure injury. Exposure to continuous high pressure can lead to pressure injuries and increased treatment costs. The Dabir surface can preserve arterial, venous and lymphatic blood flow for these patients to help maintain healthy tissue perfusion. Rows of geometric nodes provide dynamic alternating pressure relief to patients that helps reduce the effects of skin shear that can lead to pressure injuries. This innovative surface was designed to take the guesswork out of pressure injury prevention and reduce treatment costs for hospitals.
