For a person who spends many hours in bed, an air mattress is a great ally. Unfortunately, bedsores or pressure ulcers are very common for bedridden people and if not treated or prevented properly they can become a serious problem. For this reason, the use of a mattress for bedsores is vital so that the patient has optimal blood flow and is not at risk of suffering from this type of injury.
What is a pressure relief air matress?
Air mattresses are designed for people with very little or no mobility, since this way the compressor does the work that the patient cannot do on his own.
Anti-decubitus air mattresses or pressure relief mattresses are connected to a compressor which in turn is connected to the electric current. This compressor performs an alternation, inflating and deflating the different cells or tubes of the mattress to change the pressure points on which the user rests.
How to use a pressure relief matress?
- Pressure relief mattresses should be placed on a bed with an orthopedic bed base. The ideal would be to have an electric articulated bed to guarantee the well-being of the patient. We must connect the motor to the current. Most Pressure relief mattresses work with an air compressor, so it always has to be connected. All bubbles must be inflated. Next, the bubble tension should be regulated according to the patient's weight: soft, medium or tense level.
- We must protect the anti-decubitus mattress with a mattress cover so that sweat or urine does not get on the mat. We have a wide variety of anti-decubitus air mattresses, both to prevent and to help treat pressure ulcers.
How to choose the right pressure relief matress
When choosing the most suitable model it is important to take into account:
- The weight and height of the user
- The ability to move
- If he/she has or has had bedsores
- Degree of bedsores
