A randomized controlled trial to compare the interface pressures of alternating pressure overlay with gel pad versus gel pad alone during prolonged surgery

In a randomized controlled trial, Neo et al compared the effectiveness of an AP overlay with a gel pad in reducing interface pressures during prolonged surgery. Ninety patients in each group were placed supine, and the interface pressures were measured at 30-minute intervals from zero minutes up to 570 minutes.

Intraoperative Use of Low-Profile Alternating Pressure Mattress for Prevention of Hospital Acquired Pressure Injury

This was a prospective case control study conducted in the operating room and critical care unit of an urban quaternary care hospital in the United States. Neurosurgery patients undergoing surgery for 2 hours or longer in the supine position were included in the study and assigned to receive the AP overlay in the operating room and in the Neurosurgical Intensive Care Unit (NICU) or standard treatment (control).

Dabir Patient Care Plus™ System 

Patients who are immobile for prolonged periods of time are at risk for pressure injury. 

The Dabir Patient Care Plus™ System provides complete body skin protection for patients receiving care outside the perioperative setting.

Dabir Patient Care PlusTM System (with optional battery)

Dabir Patient Care PlusSystem represents the latest innovation in pressure injury prevention technology. 

It is specifically designed to protect patients from developing pressure injuries outside the perioperative care setting. 

Surgical System

The Dabir Surgical System has been shown to improve patient outcomes and has been successfully used in thousands of surgeries including cardiac, plastic surgery, neurosurgery, pediatric, transplants, and many more

Pressure injuries … Prevention across the acute-care continuum

Pressure Injuries have presented a significant risk to patients and a clinical challenge to nurses and other clinicians. In a special report, a dedicated group of nurse leaders take patient, team, and environmental factors into account and describe best practices, tools and solutions for skin safety.

Pressure injuries … Prevention across the acute-care continuum was a supplement to American Nurse Today, May 2018.

Clinical Posters

Several presented clinical posters describe key performance aspects of the Dabir systems both in the lab and in clinical settings, many with significant patient outcomes.

Continuing Education

At Dabir, we value nurses and the work they do every day in caring for patients, particularly those patients at high risk for developing pressure injuries.  We believe in supporting the ongoing education of nurses through our continuing education program at the national, chapter and Affiliate level.
