Long term bedridden patients usually care is very important, especially pay attention to frequently turn over, to avoid local skin pressure for a long time caused by bedsore. Many families will provide bedsore patients with anti bedsore gas mattress, the following is to analyze the role of bedsore mattress on bedsore protection.
Bedsore pad is divided into two types: inflatable and non inflatable. The former is controlled by electric device, while the latter is unnecessary. There are obvious differences between the two types, and they are not suitable for people.
The inflatable bedsore pad can exchange air and fluctuate freely to help the patient transfer the stress point of the body; the non inflatable bedsore pad can not exchange air, it can only relieve the local pressure, and still need the patient to turn over. Therefore, the non inflatable bedsore pad is generally used for the prevention and nursing of minor bedsore, suitable for small area wound to relieve pressure.
The inflatable mattress is controlled by an electric device, so that the air bags are alternately filled with square gas to generate waves, which is conducive to air circulation, so that the skin can contact with fresh air, which can avoid unilateral pressure, and work continuously without manual intervention, saving time and labor.
Bedsore is due to physical weakness, plus other complications, it is easy to cause recurrence, prolonged. For this kind of serious bedsore situation, nurses can consider using Shangdi inflatable bedsore pad, which can not only help patients relieve pain, but also provide a comfortable and breathable bed rest environment, which is conducive to rapid recovery.
Bedsore cushion also has disadvantages. Alternating inflation always causes fluctuations. If the amplitude is too large, it is a kind of torture. The body will keep shaking and can’t rest. If the amplitude is too small, it can’t prevent bedsore. You can choose a mattress with gentle fluctuation and moderate amplitude.
The only way to improve the bedsore recovery is to use inflatable ointment.
