PI prevention, trends and lessons learnt from the COVID-19 pandemic
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, an increasing number of patients are being admitted to ICU/CCU and cared for in a prone position for extended periods to aid mechanical ventilation. How can clinicians manage the increased risk of patients developing pressure ulcers as a result of prone positioning?
Pressure injuries (PI) continue to present substantial clinical challenges to health care professionals and place a huge economic burden on health care providers. They also have a huge impact on the quality of life of patients and their carers. Prone-positioned patients are particularly susceptible to PI.
