Maxiflo Breathable Disposable Chux Underpad by Kendall is a disposable underpad. It has a fluff and polymer breathable underpad with a spunbond nonwoven topsheet.
This underpad differs from standard underpads in that it has a soft, cloth-like breathable backsheet. This allows air to freely flow through to the patient's skin. This feature also helps the underpad prevent skin breakdown for patients who are unable to be turned.
The Chux underpad has a super absorbency polymer that can be used on low air-loss beds where air therapy is indicated. It also contains Poly-Fresh super-absorbent polymer, which provides excellent retention, improved dryness, and odor reduction.
The underpad has a generous size, which allows for ample bed coverage. It also has superior strength in construction which prevents tearing.
Maxiflo Breathable Disposable Chux Underpad by Kendall comes in a light blue color. It is available in 23x36" and 30x36" sizes.

One of my patient suffered from stroke. She is a 200+ lbs woman and it is very difficult for us to turn her every now and then. There are times that her body seems cooperative that we can actually turn her but most of the times we just can't. The result? Bed sores all over. She also have lots of rashes due to pee. So we decided that we won't put diapers on her for sometime and instead use underpad. The Kendall breathable brand works well in avoiding bed sores. It keeps the patient's skin dry and smooth. I think we will have her use this underpad until she's cured.
