Pressure Sore and Decubitus ulcers are bedsores. Pressure ulcers are typically located in areas such as heels, elbows, shoulders and the sacral region.
There are four mechanisms that contribute to pressure ulcer development: External (interface) pressure applied over an area of the body, especially over the bony prominences can result in obstruction of the blood capillaries, which deprives tissues of oxygen and nutrients, causing ischemia(deficiency of blood in a particular area), hypoxia ...
Peripheral neuropathy, often found in diabetic patients, can causes neuropathic ulcers to form. Pressure reduction combined maintaining circulation aid in treatment.
This pressure injury is located over the coccyx. Tissue loss extends to bone. Slough is present in the wound bed. Undermining of the wound edge is also observed.
This course is designed for nurses in all practice settings, particularly those caring for patients at high risk for developing pressure ulcers.
The AHCPR Guidelines for Pressure Ulcers have become the basis used for the prevention and treatment of pressure ulcers in most health care facilities.
Pressure ulcers are categorized into four stages depending on their depth of involvement. Learn what tissue each stage involves.
Full thickness tissue loss with exposed muscle is observed in this very large pressure ulcer. Slough/eschar are present. Undermining is noted at the superior wound edge.

Abstract. This paper aims to promote discussion on the physiology of pressure ulcer development and the impact this may have on clinical intervention and the allocation of resources.
Stage I: An observable pressure related alteration of intact skin whose indicators as compared to the adjacent or opposite area on the body may include changes in one or more of the following: skin temperature
US research, education and advocacy for pressure ulcer prevention and treatment.
Understanding Pressure Ulcers tissue loss can't be determined and it is called "Unstageable". If enough of the slough or eschar is removed to determine the depth
Nursing Care Plans for clients experiencing pressure ulcer includes assessing the contributing factors leading to a lack of tissue perfusion, assessing the extent of the injury, promoting compliance to the medication regimen, preventing further injury.
