Description

Details

Span-America Medical Systems' PressureGuard APM2 air pressure mattress features technology to prevent -- or help treat -- skin break down, while promoting proper circulation and enhancing comfort. Ideal for home or healthcare facilities, the PressureGuard APM2 contains four pressure-reducing, head-to-foot length air cylinders. These provide two therapy modes for overall well-being and repositioning.

Two Therapy Modes -- Twice the Value:

Flipping a side-mounted toggle switch engages one of the PressureGuard APM2's two therapy modes for greater treatment flexibility and enhanced comfort.

Alternating Pressure Mode: Alternating pairs of twin cylinders continuously inflate and deflate. According to the manufacturer, this makes improved circulation possible.

Lateral Rotation Mode: One bank of twin cylinders inflates while the other deflates to gently rotate an occupant.

To facilitate therapy, select models of the PressureGuard APM2 are available with a deluxe and easy-to-use digital multifunction control unit. The quiet control unit enables caregivers to select comfort level and operating mode, including a "float mode" for powered flotation therapy. The control unit for this pressure reduction mattress also features power and low-pressure audible alarms. Three different lengths of pressure relief mattresses are available.

Pressure Management Technology:

On its very top layer, the PressureGuard APM2 features a fluid-proof bacteriostatic cover that inhibits bacteria reproduction. Beneath it are several key elements that have been optimized to maximize occupant well-being and separate Span-America's pressure management mattress from traditional designs.

GeoMatt Overlay: Consisting of more than 800 individually articulating cells, the GeoMatt redistributes pressure, reducing both heat and skin moisture buildup. The cells also accommodate bony prominences.

Patented Shear Transfer Zone Technology: Three silicone-coated, shear-minimizing bands lie underneath the scapula, sacrum and heels. These delicate areas are protected from shearing because the zones' fabric and design enable occupants to smoothly glide between positions on the mattress. Without these transfer zones, movement on a mattress can lead to skin-damaging shearing. This is a mechanical force in which skin is externally pulled in a direction parallel to the body and internally pulled in another direction by underlying bones.

Vitality Medical provides a full array of care items for damaged skin, such as Molnlycke's Mepilex Self-Adherent Foam Dressing.

PressureGuard APM2 Additional Features and Benefits:

  • Heel Slope -- Further reduces heel pressure.
  • Streamlined Operation -- The recessed, mode-selection toggle switch eliminates disconnecting or exchanging air lines.
  • Occupant Safety -- Patented Safety Edge with "crawling effect" minimizes falls and entrapment. The inner-bolster's cradling effect further enhances occupant security.
  • Caregiver Support -- A 20-minute "Auto Firm" mode facilitates transfers, CPR and daily living activities; mode automatically returns to previously selected mode.

Please consult the Braden Scale for Predicting Pressure Sore and Risk

The Braden Scale for Predicting Pressure Sore Risk is a clinically validated tool that allows nurses and other health care providers to reliably score a patient/client's level of risk for developing pressure ulcers.

Key Benefits
  • Assists nurses with varied experience and judgment to consistently identify patients at risk and to quantify the severity of risk.
  • Reminds busy nursing staff to attend to this aspect of patient assessment and care with the consistency necessary to influence outcomes.
  • Directs the attention of the nurse to six specific risk factors so that preventive care can be appropriately prescribed.
The Braden Scale is a summated rating scale made up of six subscales scored from 1-3 or 4, for total scores that range from 6-23. The subscales measure functional capabilities of the patient that contribute to either higher intensity and duration of pressure or lower tissue tolerance for pressure. A lower Braden Scale Score indicates lower levels of functioning and, therefore, higher levers of risk for pressure ulcer development.

Basic Protocols

Basic protocols based on Braden Scale scores are provided. The intensity of the preventive interventions being recommended increase as the level of risk rises. These protocols are easily understood by staff and, if they are consistently followed, have been found to reduce the incidence of pressure ulcers.

Skin Assessment Tool

The Skin Assessment Tool is a useful instrument for assessment of the skin surface for lesions. It directs the caregiver to systematically evaluate 29 of the most common sites of pressure ulcer occurrence. A head-to-toe assessment of skin condition should be conducted daily for at-risk patients.
