Dabir Surgical Systems are well suited for patients undergoing surgical procedures exceeding 2 hours to prevent pressure injury (decubitus ulcers). These patients are immobilized during surgery on operating tables and may experience impeded blood flow that can lead to tissue damage and cell necrosis. Pressure injuries (decubitus ulcers) can present themselves 48-72 hours after surgery and can prolong treatment options for a patient’s primary complications.1
Perioperative teams now have an effective solution for protecting patients at risk for pressure injury. The Dabir Surgical System has been shown in neurosurgery patients to lower hospital-acquired pressure injuries. CMS estimates treatment costs for a late stage pressure injury are $43,180.2
