Dabir Patient Care System
Patients entering critical care following a long surgical procedure or sedated patients on mechanical ventilation, particularly those with comorbidities are at risk for developing pressure injuries. Pressure injuries (decubitus ulcers) may also result from cumulative exposure to sustained high pressure that some patients can experience before entering the critical care environment. CMS estimates treatment costs for a late stage pressure injury are $43,180.1
The new Dabir Patient Care System is an innovative solution for the critical care clinician to aid in the prevention of pressure injuries (decubitus ulcers). This system has the same alternating pressure technology as the Dabir Surgical System and provides tissue offloading capabilities to support healthy tissue perfusion. What’s more, the Dabir Patient Care System has several safety features and gives the bed-side clinician more information that is useful in the care of the critically ill patient.
