Description

Designed for Pediatric Pressure Injury Prevention – Improving full body pressure injury and deformation prevention in children & petite patients.

75% of paediatric patients (unsuitable to be treated as adults) worldwide develop pressure injuries, especially in neonates and children with chronic diseases. Underdeveloped tissues and structures weaken their resistance to pressure and awareness of pain, accelerating pressure injury and deformation development.1-3

Head pressure injuries are common in younger patients due to a larger, heavier head and lack of a fatty protective layer. Other frequent sites include ankles, heels, hips, and sacrum area. Paediatric PI is 94% more costly than adult PI cases and extends hospitalization by 14 days, increasing caregivers’ workload.2,4-6

Pro-care Auto Paediatric simplifies caregivers’ workflow and care accuracy with air cells that conform to smaller bodies — patented. It automates mattress firmness to optimize head-to-toe pressure relief, minimizing PI and deformation-related risks for petite patients (5 kg to 95 kg).

Abbreviations: PI, pressure injury; PICU, paediatric ICU.

Preventing pressure ulcers

It can be challenging to prevent pressure ulcers completely, but there are some things you or your care team can do to reduce the risk. These include:

  • Regularly changing your position – if you’re unable to change position yourself, a relative or carer will need to help you
  • Checking your skin every day for early signs and symptoms of pressure ulcers – this will be done by your care team if you’re in a hospital or care home
  • Have a healthy, balanced diet that contains enough protein and a good variety of vitamins and minerals – if you’re concerned about your diet or caring for someone whose diet may be poor, ask your GP or healthcare team for a referral to a dietitian
  • Stopping smoking – smoking makes you more likely to get pressure ulcers because of the damage caused to blood circulation
 

If you’re in a hospital or care home, your healthcare team should be aware of the risk of developing pressure ulcers. They should carry out a risk assessment, monitor your skin and use preventative measures, such as regular repositioning.
