Pressure Ulcer Wound Care

Compassionate Care for Pressure Ulcer Relief

Pressure ulcers, also known as bedsores or pressure injuries, are wounds that develop due to prolonged pressure on the skin. These painful ulcers often occur in individuals who are bedridden or have limited mobility, such as those in long-term care facilities or recovering at home after surgery. Without proper care, pressure ulcers can lead to serious infections and complications, significantly impacting the quality of life for those affected.

Understanding Pressure Ulcers

Understanding Pressure Ulcers

Pressure ulcers form when continuous pressure restricts blood flow to the skin and underlying tissues. This lack of blood flow can cause the skin to break down and develop sores, which are particularly common over bony areas like the heels, ankles, hips, tailbone or the sacral area of the body. Contributing factors can include poor nutrition, dehydration, and underlying health conditions that affect skin integrity and healing.

  • Immobility: Patients who are bedridden or use wheelchairs are at higher risk due to prolonged pressure on specific body parts.
  • Poor Nutrition: Inadequate intake of protein, vitamins, and minerals can impair skin integrity and slow the healing process.
  • Dehydration: Proper hydration is essential for maintaining healthy skin and promoting wound healing.
  • Medical Conditions: Conditions such as diabetes, vascular diseases, and neurological disorders can increase the risk of pressure ulcers by affecting blood circulation and skin health.
  • Moisture: Excessive moisture from sweat, urine, or feces can weaken the skin, making it more susceptible to injury.

Preventing and managing pressure ulcers requires a comprehensive approach, including regular repositioning, using pressure-relieving devices, maintaining good nutrition and hydration, and diligent skin care. Early intervention is crucial to prevent minor skin issues from progressing into severe ulcers. However, if you are suffering from a stage 2 pressure ulcer or higher it might be time to consult a wound care specialist.
