Mattresses for Pressure Sores

Mattresses for pressure sores have made a huge difference to the ability of patientís to recovery quickly from illness and avoid complications. These pressure sores can cause huge problems for people but they are now becoming a much rarer occurrence than in the past. These mattresses for pressure sores are making a huge difference and it is now difficult to imagine how hospitals could manage without them.

Why Are Mattresses for Pressure Sores Required?



In the past pressure sores were a common risk for patients who needed to spend a lot of time in bed. These ulcers occurred because of constant pressure on the skin tissue that comes from lying down all the time. These sores would appear if the patient didnít change their position regularly enough or if they had physical conditions that made these ulcers more likely to appear. The fact is that the body is just not designed to be lying in bed for so long and problems can occur when we try to do this.

Pressure sores usually start off quite small but they can quickly get out of control. Some people end up with huge cavities in their bodies that can take a long time to heal. These ulcers complicate recovery and people might need to spend a lot longer in hospital than they would have to if they didnít have these sores. These wounds require constant nursing attention as they can easily become infected further complicating the patientís recovery. It is not only people in hospital that are at risk of these pressure sores; in fact they can happen with anyone on long term bed rest.

How Mattresses for Pressure Sores Can Help



Pressure sores were once considered a real challenge when it came to prevention. Nurses would try to change the position of immobile patients every couple of hours but this could sometimes make things worse Ė these sores can also be caused by shearing force as the skin moves across the sheets during a move. Hospitals would implement lots of strategies but patients would still get these nasty ulcers. Since the mattresses for pressure sores though there really has been a huge difference.

The mattresses for pressure sores work by not putting too much pressure on the personís body. They are usually specially designed air mattresses but there are also other types as well. With some of the more expensive mattresses for pressure sores it really can feel like the patient is floating rather than lying on a bed Ė there is hardly any pressure at all on the body.

Choosing Mattresses for Pressure Sores for Your Home
