What is a Pressure Ulcer?

A pressure ulcer is localised damage to the skin and/or underlying tissue, usually over a bony prominence (or related to a medical or other device), resulting from sustained pressure (including pressure associated with shear). 

The damage can be present as intact skin or an open ulcer and may be painful. The most common sites are the skin overlying the sacrum, heels and hips, though other sites can be affected, such as the elbows, knees, back of shoulders, or the back of the head.
 
Causes of Pressure Ulcers
PRESSURE FROM IMMOBILITY: The SILIPOS® Prevederm Heel Cushion helps to support, protect and evenly distribute pressure on critical areas.
 
FRICTION: The SILIPOS® Prevederm Heel Cushion gel allows the cushion to move synergistically with the skin helping to prevent abrasion and discomfort.
 
SHEARING: The SILIPOS® Prevederm Heel Cushion provides protection from the skin sticking to surfaces and prevents damage to underlying tissue.
 
MOISTURE: The SILIPOS® Prevederm Heel Cushion features perforations for better breathability and prevents excessive moisture build up.
 
OTHER: Poor diet, weight, age, and medical conditions.


Pressure Ulcer Prevention

  • Use cushions that relieve pressure
  • Keep skin clean and dry
  • Shift weight and position frequently
  • Adjust the elevation of the bed to help prevent shearing
  • Inspect the skin regularly
