Pressure Ulcer Prevention Systems
Pressure ulcer prevention is a key consideration for patients at risk for developing in pressure injuries. In the perioperative setting, patients can be exposed to the cumulative effects of pressure beginning in pre-op through the intra-operative phase and into the PACU and ICU. It has been reported that 23% of all hospital-acquired pressure injuries (HAPIs) are acquired intra-operatively during surgeries lasting three hours or more.1
Hospital-acquired PI’s (HAPIs) occur in 6% to 10% of surgical critical care patients in the United States and result in longer hospitalization, increased morbidity, and human suffering.2
Dabir patient support systems feature low-profile surfaces are comprised of rows of geometric air-filled nodes that alternate by inflating and deflating to provide tissue offloading. This allows tissue reperfusion to occur thereby preventing pressure ulcers.
Dabir patient support systems
- Provide whole body skin protection for patients in the acute care setting.
- Have been clinically demonstrated to reduce pressure injuries.3
- Are well tolerated by the clinical staff
This innovative solution
- Provides tissue offloading
- Mitigates the effects of deep tissue deformation and
- Reduces skin shear to prevent pressure (ulcers) injuries.
