The skin is the largest organ in the human body and is a protective barrier. It shields the body against heat, light, injury, and infection. The skin also helps regulate body temperature and gathers sensory information from the environment e.g. touch, pain, pressure, vibration and temperature.

Hi Caroline, I’m glad someone has finally written an article on this issue. I have raised this issue for years. As nurses and healthcare providers, we are supposed to deliver up to date evidence based care and there is no evidence to say that air mattresses or foam mattresses or 2 hourly turns are the way to prevent pressure sores. What the quality statement means for service providers, health and social care practitioners, and commissioners . Service providers (community care, hospitals and care homes with nursing) ensure that training in repositioning techniques and use of repositioning equipment are provided for health and social care practitioners so that they can help to reposition people at risk of pressure ulcers Plan your patient’s daily turning and movement regime. • Identify pressure areas, which are at risk • Ensure patient’s waterlow assessment is up to date Gray M, et al., Moisture vs. pressure: making sense out of perineal wounds.

MOISTURE Presbyterian Wound Care Clinic Dallas, TX, 75231 healerone@aol.com Abstract—Pressure ulcer is a critical problem for bed-ridden and wheelchair-bound patients, diabetics, and the elderly. Pa-tients need to be regularly repositioned to prevent excessive pressure on a single area of body, which can lead to ulcers. The action of the patient’s own weight on the airflow mattress encourages air to move in and out of the cells to match weight distribution and movement to achieve best possible pressure reduction. The surface contact area is increased which reduces peak interface pressures The mattress uses high-grade healthinsight.org

Reposition the patient/ client to reduce the risk of further damage, eg using the 30 degree tilt. Use manual handling aids to minimise risk of friction and shear. Clients who spend the majority of time on one surface need a pressure reduction or pressure relief device to reduce the risk of skin breakdown. Assess the skin over bony prominences (sacrum, trochanters, scapulae, elbows, heels, inner and outer malleolus, inner and outer knees, back of the head). The skin is the largest organ in the human body and is a protective barrier. It shields the body against heat, light, injury, and infection. The skin also helps regulate body temperature and gathers sensory information from the environment e.g. touch, pain, pressure, vibration and temperature.
