High specification pressure redistributing overlay ideal fordialysis units
Treatments, such as dialysis performed over a long period of time on a support surface that restrict free movement, can greatly increase the risk of skin damage as a result of direct pressure over bony prominences.
Specifically cut castellations in zoned areas across the surface of the renal overlay not only enhance the pressure redistributing qualities of a dialyis chair, they will also address areas of increased vulnerability where there is a reduction or absence of subcutaneous fat (the heels or the elbows).
Confidence for staff and individuals is provided by fully adjustable securing straps to securely fit over most dialysis chairs, preventing movement of the overlay mattress during individual transfer.
Infection control requirements can be easily met by the recent addition of a fully sealed zip, reducing the risk of fluid ingress to the internal components of the overlay. The vapour permeable wipe-able surface can be easily cleaned between individuals to reduce valuable staff time and essential treatment delays.
Manufactured to European Standards: BS 7177 Crib 5 Essential nursing care is pivotal in pressure ulcer prevention. This mattress will positively contribute to the outcome of a pressure ulcer prevention care plan. Education, clinical judgment and action based planning based on vulnerability are fundamental factors in the prevention of pressure ulcers. A range of assessment scales can be used as a formal method of assessing risk from pressure ulcer development, and should be used in conjunction with an informal assessment (informed nursing judgment). The risk category in this instance is based on the Waterlow Scale.
