Pressure Sore Prevention Foam Mattress
Pressure sores refers to severe degeneration of blood circulation due to constant pressure on certain soft body tissues, leading to insufficient supply of nutrients and oxygen to the skin and subcutaneous tissues. This causes a lack of oxygen and blood in certain soft tissues and then loss of normal physiological functions, as well as, gradual necrosis and ulceration of these tissues. Pressure sores are normally caused by long-term immobilization, spinal cord injury, chronic neurological diseases (mainly cerebrovascular diseases), physical weakness and numerous wasting diseases. Because of improper care, the morbidity rate of pressure sores is high, the course develops rapidly, and are hard to be cured. Therefore, care for pressure sores is extremely important.
