Pressure Ulcers:

Understanding what they are and how to prevent them

Joining the Effort in Pressure Ulcer Prevention

There is a national focus on pressure ulcer prevention. In fact, the goal of the Institute for Healthcare Improvement was to reduce incidence by December 2008 and focus on “getting to zero.”

The Healthy People Initiative 2010 set forth two goals: increase the quality and years of healthy life and eliminate health disparities. In support of these goals, one specific objective is to cut the incidence of pressure ulcers in nursing home residents 50% by 2010.

Six key interventions aimed at reducing pressure ulcer incidence are:

1. Assess pressure ulcer risk upon admission for all patients in all care environments: acute care, long term care and home care

2. Reassess risk daily through skin inspection

3. Manage moisture by keeping the patient dry

4. Optimize nutrition

5. Minimize pressure through use of pressure-relieving surfaces

6. Turn every 2 hours

The statistics are worth noting: There are 1.8 million new pressure ulcer cases each year, with 70% of those occurring in persons age

70 or older at an overall treatment cost of $1.3 billion. 24% of skilled nursing r esidents develop pressure ulcers at some time. That number increases to 60% in individuals with hip fractures.

Invacare has joined the effort with a full range of comfort solutions designed to prevent and remediate pressure ulcers.

The microAIR and Solace innovative technology solutions offer the patient increased relief and comfort while providing the caregiver a product that is easy to setup, use and maintain.

The focus on more effective prevention and quicker healing is driven, and even mandated, by many government and medical associations. It’s what you’d expect from the leading manufacturer of medical equipment in the world – Invacare.

But age, obesity, diabetes and other illnesses can all lead to pressure ulcers…and Americans are increasing in age, weight and diabetes occurrences. The goal of pressure ulcer reduction sounds like an impossible feat.

This information is not medical advice. Each individual should always consult with his/her physician.

Understanding Pressure Ulcers

What are pressure ulcers?

Pressure ulcers, sometimes called bed sores or decubitus (lying in bed) ulcers, are typically located in the areas where the body has less protective covering on weight bearing points. Those areas are typically heels, elbows, shoulders and the sacral regions in the supine, semi-recumbent and seated positions.

Ankles, knees, hips and ears are additional areas of concern in the lateral position. (See Fig. A) When blood pressure inside the dermis is blocked or above 32mm/Hg, capillaries begin to close. (See Fig. B on page 5)

Without the nutrients in the blood and the removal of waste products, the area begins to break down. The first sign is redness and warmth to the touch. In severe stages, extensive tissue destruction can lead to tissue necrosis (death), and damage to supporting muscle and bone.

Who is at risk for a pressure ulcer?

A person who sits or lies in one position for an extended period of time might be at risk for pressure sores. Patients are more likely to get pressure sores if they are paralyzed, use a wheelchair or spend most of their time in bed.

How is patient risk assessed?

Patient risk is assessed on a number of factors standardized in assessments such as the Norton or Braden scales. it is recommended that patients be assessed as soon as possible upon entering into care.

This information is not medical advice. Each individual should always consult with his/her physician to determine proper product selection.

What are the risk factors?

1. Patient is immobile or inactive

The lack of movement results in loss of blood flow to the skin.

2. Body size and shape

Very thin or very obese patients are at a higher risk. Very thin

people lack cushioning between the skin and bony prominences

such as heels and elbows. Overweight patients have fewer

blood vessels to the skin and require body movement to get the

blood flow to the susceptible areas.

3. Skin condition and hygiene regimens

Thinning skin, which naturally occurs with age, as well as with

the use of some medications, may make the patient more

susceptible.

4. Nutrition

A balanced diet and proper calorie consumption are important in

maintaining skin thickness and elasticity.

5. Incontinence and infection

Urine and fecal matter or increases in body temperature and

subsequent perspiration can cause maceration (the skin to

soften). The skin is therefore more susceptible to tearing.

6. Circulation

Edema or swelling due to poor blood circulation makes the

susceptible areas less resistant to pressure.

How do pressure ulcers form?

Any individual or combination of the above factors, combined with environmental skin factors below, can result in a pressure ulcer. If the outer layer of skin (epidermis) is rubbed away, the more vulnerable dermis layer is exposed to bacteria and infection.

1. Pressure

When the capillary blood pressure is cut off from the skin by

pressure on the area for an extended time.

2. Moisture

Over-hydrated (macerated) skin is at higher risk of tearing or

breaking down from moving or friction.

3. Shear

Capillaries stretch and tear, reducing the blood flow when the skin

remains stationary against the bed linens as the skeletal structure

moves with the surface.

4. Friction

When the skin is pulled across a coarse surface and the outer

protective layer (epidermis) is rubbed away.

What are support surfaces?

Support surfaces are the special mattresses, mattress overlays, seat cushions and specialty beds that support a patient’s body in bed or in a chair. Specifically, these support surfaces are used to reduce or relieve pressure that the weight of the body, and especially the bones, exert on the skin as it presses against the surface of a bed or seat of a chair. By relieving or reducing this pressure, existing pressure ulcers can heal and the chance that new pressure ulcers will develop can be reduced.

Types

• Nonpowered surfaces that include air, foam, gel mattresses

and overlays

• Powered and nonpowered surfaces that include dynamic air

overlays, low-air-loss systems, alternating pressure systems

and lateral rotation systems

Which support surface to choose?

Support surfaces may be static (non-powered, reactive) or dynamic

(movable, active surface). A static surface is recommended if a patient can assume varying positions without bearing weight on a pressure ulcer, generally a Group I surface. Dynamic surfaces are required if the patient cannot change positions without bearing weight on the pressure ulcer or if the patient fully compresses the static support surface, generally a Group II surface. Choosing the corrrect surface depends on the requirements listed under the Medicare criteria. See page 24.

Patient Safety and Caregiver Confidence

Constant Pressure Monitoring

The touch pad allows you to set the appropriate pressure using patient weight. Once set, the computer technology inside monitors the pressure. Solenoid valves open and close to regulate the air inside the mattress and maintain the pressure at or below 32mm/

Hg to avoid capillary occlusion. On compressor models (MA50,

MA51, MA55, MA60, MA65 and MA90Z), the compressor will turn off while in maintenance mode for a quieter, energy saving environment.

Secure magnetic connector on blower models MA85 and MA95Z

On Demand Low Air Loss

microAIR compressor models (MA55, MA65, MA90Z) all include the on-demand low air loss feature. When activated at the push of the button, air is sent inside the mattress to keep the mattress environment cooler for the patient, as well as help with moisture management. When not in use, the compressor will go into quiet energy saving mode for an improved sleep environment.

Ease of Set Up and Connection*

Unroll the mattress and hook the power unit to the end of the bed.

Snap the mattress hose onto the plugged-in power unit and the mattress is ready to inflate.

*Always read the product owner’s manual before use.

Convenient snap on connections for compressor models

MA60, MA65 and

MA90Z.

Wireless Auto Fowler

microAIR models MA60, MA65, MA80,

MA85, MA90Z, MA95Z include this feature.

A transmitter in the head section of the bed sends a signal to the power unit when that section is raised to add 25% more air into the center section of the bed, preventing the patient from bottoming out. A caregiver no longer needs to push the fowler button and the patient can raise the bed without calling for assistance.

Ease of Transport

Removal of the mattress is simplified by rolling it up beginning at the head section and putting the power unit inside the mattress for protection. Once rolled, attached over-the-shoulder carrying handles allow for easy transport.

Power Outage Safety

In the event of a power outage, compressor models (MA50, MA51, MA55, MA60, MA65 and

MA90Z) remain inflated as long as the mattress air hose remains connected to the compressor.

Once the power is returned, the memory inside the power unit returns to the programmed settings. Blower models (MA80, MA85 and

MA95Z) also return to the pre-power outage settings once the power returns. The safety mat inside the mattress prevents the patient from bottoming out. Lateral rotation must be reprogrammed in MA90Z and MA95Z as a safety precaution.

Whenever bed rails are used as part of any hospital or home care bed system, the potential for bed rail entrapment exists. To reduce this risk, a patient must always be assessed regarding their risk of entrapment before any product is used. Routine patient monitoring is also required once a product is in use. To learn more about the risk of bed rail entrapment please visit the US

FDA's website at http://www.fda.gov and search for "Bed Rail Entrapment.

Additional Safety Features

All microAIR therapeutic support systems include additional safety features: 2" safety foam mat (except the MA50 alternating pressure mattress overlay), low pressure and power outage audio and visual alarms and a lock out button to avoid accidental adjustments. microAIR therapeutic support systems are compliant with federal fire regulation 16CFR1632 and 16CFR1633 standards by including a sewn in fire sock on each model.

Lateral Rotation Therapeutic Support

Mattress Replacement Systems

Model nos. MA90Z and MA95Z

Invacare ® microAIR ® lateral rotation mattresses provide pressure relief and moisture maintenance for patients who need to be turned for pressure relief or other health indications. Inherent in the design of the patented z-cell design is alternating pressure as the mattress turns.

As with the other microAIR mattresses, these therapeutic systems offer relief for pressure ulcers from stages I through IV.

Another protective measure of the MA90 Series for patient safety is that the mattress recenters the patient between rotations. Also, the lateral rotation mode will automatically be stopped when the bed is in the fowler or upright mode.

Therapeutic Support Surfaces

Group I and Group II Medicare Criteria

MEDICARE CRITERIA*

Support surfaces may be static (non-powered, reactive) or dynamic (moveable active surface). A static surface is recommended if a patient can assume varying positions without bearing weight on a pressure ulcer, generally a Group i surface. Dynamic surfaces are required if the patient cannot change positions without bearing weight on the pressure ulcer Or if the patient fully compresses the static support surface (usually Group ii) .**

GROUP I TREATMENT

Group i surfaces may be covered if the patient meets the following criteria:

1. Completely immobile (patient cannot move around without assistance).

OR

2. Limited mobility (patient cannot make changes in body positions significant enough to alleviate pressure) PLUS one of Number 4-7.

OR

3. Any stage pressure ulcer on the trunk or pelvis

PLUS one of Numbers 4-7.

AND

4. impaired nutritional status.

5. Fecal or urinary incontinence.

6. Altered sensory perception.

7. Compromised circulatory status.

GROUP II TREATMENT

Group ii surfaces may be covered if the patient meets the following criteria:

1. Multiple stage ii pressure ulcers located on the trunk or pelvis.

AND

2. Patient has been on a comprehensive ulcer treatment program*** for at least the past month which has included the use of a Group i support surface, and ulcers have worsened or remained the same over the past month.

OR

3. Large or multiple stage iii or iV pressure ulcer(s) on the trunk or pelvis.

OR

4. recent myocutaneous flap or skin graft for a pressure ulcer on the trunk or pelvis (surgery within the past 60 days).

AND

5. The patient has been on a Group ii or iii support surface immediately prior to a recent discharge from a hospital or nursing facility (discharge within the past 30 days).

* Medicare Criteria: This information is not intended to be, nor should it be considered, billing or legal advice. Providers are responsible for determining the appropriate billing codes when submitting claims to the Medicare program, and should consult an attorney or other advisor to discuss specific situations in further detail.

** This information is not medical advice. Each individual should always consult with his/her physician to determine proper product selection.

*** Documented comprehensive care plan/treatment program should generally include: education for patient and caregiver on prevention/management of pressure ulcers; regular assessment by a licensed practitioner (weekly if stage 3 or 4, monthly if stage 1 or 2); turning and positioning schedule; appropriate wound care (stage 3 or 4); appropriate management of moisture/ incontinence; nutritional assessment and intervention.
