Decubitus Ulcers and Wound Care By SEO Admin on April 25, 2008

According American Medical Forensic Specialists, Inc. (March 2008 Newsletter) decubitus ulcers are pressure ulcers. A pressure ulcer has an area of unrelieved pressure over a defined area, usually over a bony prominence, resulting in ischemia, cell death and tissue narcosis. The article points out that despite current interests and advancements in medicine, surgery, nursing care and self-care education, pressure ulcers remain a major cause of morbidity and mortality. This is especially true for persons with impaired sensation, prolonged immobility or advanced age. It is important that persons who suffer from decubitus ulcers are initially assessed and treated appropriately. If not, the consequences can be life altering or even life ending.
