  • $ 20.00 USD


This guideline extract includes the chapters Repositioning and Early Mobilization and Repositioning to Prevent and Treat Heel Pressure Ulcers that both address prevention and treatment of pressure ulcers. The importance of correct manual handling technique, pressure relief schedules for seated individuals and promotion of early mobilization is discussed. The extract addresses pressure relief in individuals with existing pressure ulcers, and the importance of avoiding positioning individuals on areas of existing non-blanchable erythema. The recommendations in this extract also focus on heel pressure ulcers, which are a challenge to both prevent and manage.
