PREVENT AND MANAGE WOUNDS

For Healthcare Providers and Patients

PressureAlert® is a three-component pressure monitoring system that enables health care providers and patients to prevent and manage wounds. Technology includes sensor-containing dressings, tablet with monitoring/alert system software, and cloud-based platform for remote monitoring and storage of clinical history.

The PressureAlert® System prevents and heals wounds by alerting patients and caregivers when the patient has applied too much pressure for too long to a high risk area of the body.

Pressure Ulcers, Injuries & Bedsores

A pressure ulcer is an injury to the skin as a result of sustained pressure applied to the skin over time (friction and shear play a role as well). The pressure results in reduced blood flow and eventually causes skin breakdown and the development of an open wound.

What is a pressure injury?

According to the National Pressure Injury Advisory Panel (NPIAP) a pressure injury, also known as a pressure ulcer or bed sore, is localized damage to the skin and underlying soft tissue usually over a bony prominence or related to a medical or other device. The injury can present as intact skin or an open sore (ulcer) and may be painful. The injury occurs as a result of intense and/or prolonged pressure or pressure in combination with shear and/or friction forces.

Why is prevention important?

Prevention of pressure injuries/ulcers is key because they can lead to serious complications such as infection, gangrene, amputation, and ultimately in some cases death. The image on the left shows 11 of the most common places where pressure ulcers occur. These 11 sites include the back of the head, upper spine prominence (between the shoulder blades and spine), left and right hip, lower back or sacrum (tailbone), left and right ischium bones (buttocks), back of the elbows on left and right arm, and left and right heel. Of the 11 at-risk areas mentioned above, pressure injures are most prevalent on the sacrum and the heels.

How To Treat Heel Pressure Ulcers

Overall, the most effective strategy to prevent and treat heel pressure ulcers is pressure redistribution. A professional heel-offloading device that floats the heel is usually recommended for successful pressure redistribution. The device needs to provide patient comfort and ease of use as it floats the heel. Appropriate offloading, adequate ventilation and friction-free materials are all important features for any product that will be used to prevent or treat heel pressure sores.
