Prevention and Treatment of Pressure Ulcers: Medical Device Related Pressure Ulcers – an extract from the Clinical Practice Guideline

  • $ 10.00 USD


This guideline extract includes the chapter Medical Device Related Pressure Ulcers.  Individuals with a medical device in situ are at a high risk of pressure ulcers related to the device. These pressure ulcers develop due to prolonged, unrelieved pressure on the skin and underlying tissue, often contributed to by moisture around the device, impaired sensation or perfusion and/or local edema, as well as systemic factors. The recommendations in this extract address assessment of skin that is placed at risk due to a medical device, strategies to redistribute pressure associated with a device, and skin protection.
