Pressure ulcer prevention
Prof. Michael Clark – Dressing properties and reductions in incidence of pressure ulcers
A number of clinical studies have demonstrated significant reductions in the incidence of pressure ulcers following the use of a five-layered absorbent foam dressing with a soft silicone wound contact surface. Professor Michael Clark answers the question: What properties of that particular dressing type are responsible for this effect?
Mölnlycke Health Care, together with some of the world’s leading experts, hosted an outstanding symposium on pressure ulcer prevention during this year’s European Wound Management Association’s conference in Vienna. Immediately after the symposium, the experts Professor Michael Clark (Visiting Professor of Tissue Viability, Faculty of Health, Birmingham City University, Birmingham, United Kingdom; President of the European Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel), Paulo Alves (Assistant Teacher, Health Science Institute, Catholic University of Portugal, Porto, Portugal), and Professor Cees Oomens (Associate Professor in Biomechanics and Continuummechanics, Eindhoven University of Technology, Eindhoven, The Netherlands) answered questions from visitors to molnlycke.com and less-pain.com relating to the role of dressings in the prevention of pressure ulcers.
