Pressure-Time Profile Analysis to Select Surfaces that Effectively Redistribute Pediatric Occipital Pressure.

Higer, Samantha.

Abstract: Pressure ulcers are a hospital-acquired condition with reported incidence of up to 27% in acutely ill infants and children, who are particularly vulnerable during long periods of immobilization. Pressure is a key risk factor for pressure ulcer formation and pressure-redistributing surfaces are used in the clinical setting to mitigate this risk. However, there is a lack of information on ... read more
