Advanced Wound Care Dressings for Bed Sores & Pressure Ulcers

According to the Mayo Clinic, Bedsores — also called pressure sores or pressure ulcers — are injuries to skin and underlying tissue resulting from prolonged pressure on the skin. Bedsores most often develop on skin that covers bony areas of the body, such as the shoulder blades, ears, back of head, spine, heels, elbows, ankles, hips and tailbone.Stages of Pressure Ulcers

People most at risk to bedsores are those with a healthcare or medical condition that limits their ability to change positions, requires them to use a wheelchair or confines them to a bed for long periods of time. Frequent and gentle position changes that minimize pressure on the bony areas of the body are most important in preventing pressure ulcers. Developing quickly, bedores are easier to prevent than to treat, and visual inspections for suspected tissue injury can prevent further complications. The National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (NPUAP) has dfined the stages of pressure ulcers as follows:

  • Stage 1: the sores are not open wounds. The skin may be painful, but it has no breaks or tears. The skin appears reddened and does not blanch (lose color briefly when pressed and released). In a dark-skinned person, the area may appear to be a different color than the surrounding skin, but it may not look red. Skin temperature is often warmer. And the stage 1 sore can feel either firmer or softer than the area around it.
  • Stage 2:  the skin breaks open, wears away, or forms an ulcer, which is usually tender and painful. The sore expands into deeper layers of the skin. It can look like a scrape (abrasion), blister, or a shallow crater in the skin. Sometimes this stage looks like a blister filled with clear fluid. At this stage, some skin may be damaged beyond repair or may die.
  • Stage 3:  the sore gets worse and extends into the tissue beneath the skin, forming a small crater. Fat may show in the sore, but not muscle, tendon, or bone.
  • Stage 4:  the pressure sore is very deep, reaching into muscle and bone and causing extensive damage. Damage to deeper tissues, tendons, and joints may occur.
