Reducing pressure. Reducing costs. Dermisplus prevent has 10% better peak pressure.
Preventing and managing pressure damage can be complicated, time-consuming and a drain on clinical resources. The use of medical devices can also be a source of potential pressure damage. It is estimated that it costs the NHS £3.8m per day to treat the 700,000 people developing a pressure ulcer each year (NHS Improvement 2016).
To help care providers in the prevention and management of Category 1 pressure damage, Dermisplus Prevent is a new range of pressure redistribution pads designed to help reduce the risk of pressure damage as part of a pressure area care strategy. They are proven to produce lower peak pressures than competitor product and can provide cost savings of up to 22%.
How Does It Work?
Dermisplus Prevent redistributes peak pressures over a wider surface area so reducing the risk of pressure related tissue damage.
It can be used anywhere on the body which is identified as being 'at risk', especially where there are bony prominences for example, on heels, elbows and sacral areas but also under medical devices such as, medical tubing, mask straps and other equipment.
Reducing PressureDermisplus prevent offers a 10% reduction in peak pressures.
The results of comparative testing of Dermisplus Prevent sheets in comparison to Aderma dermal pads, found that Dermisplus Prevent offers on average a 10% better peak pressure redistribution - so providing more effective pressure redistribution and helping to protect your patients from pressure damage.
Using Dermisplus Prevent could reduce spend on pressure redistribution pads by up to 22% versus competitor products and so helping to reduce the financial burden associated with pressure ulcer prevention and management.
How to Use:
Dermisplus Prevent is indicated for use on:
Intact skin where there is a risk of pressure damage, including from medical devices.
Areas of the body with existing Category 1 pressure damage.
