June to August 2013
Every year, pressure ulcers affect thousands of acute care and nursing facility patients. Working together, we can implement activities and processes to ensure quality care for patients with pressure ulcers and those who are at high risk of developing them.
Refresh your pressure care knowledge with the June to August edition of our Medistore Insight publication.
A ‘bottoming out’ test is used to determine if there is sufficient pressure in an alternating support surface to match the patient’s weight. Watch our useful ‘Bottoming out’ video and learn the correct technique to perform this important test.
Medistore offers an extensive range of alternating pressure mattresses specifically designed to help prevent and treat pressure injury. Browse our website for product range information or to download our pressure surface range guide. Alternatively, contact us for a copy of our catalogue or for any support to select the surface right for your patient.
