Memory Foam Pillows Found to Help Prevent Pressure Ulcers Among Bed-Ridden Patients

Shredded Memory Foam Pillow will help bed-ridden patients avoid pressure ulcers.


Chesterfield, MO -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/03/2016 -- Memory foam pillow can help prevent pressure ulcers in bed-ridden patients, according to a new editorial published by PubMed.

A recent editorial discussed the importance of constant repositioning and the use of pressure-relieving memory foam pillows in preventing pressure ulcers in bed-ridden patients.

Pressure ulcers are wounds that appear in parts of the body that are constantly in contact with the bed, pillows and mattresses. Lacerations appear due to the pressure that irritates the skin. The condition commonly affects people with problem with mobility and those who are bed ridden. If taken for granted, the ulcerations or wounds can easily get infected and may even result to death.

The editorial, which was posted at the PubMed Health, discussed the benefits of constant repositioning of the patient's body and the use of pressure-relieving memory foam pillow in preventing pressure ulcers. It explained, "Reducing pressure on the skin and regularly shifting the position when sitting or lying in is the most important thing caregivers can do to prevent pressure ulcers from developing."

The number of times a patient's body is repositioned can vary from one case to another. The editorial explained that caregivers must be adept in anticipating at which time to reposition a patient. For instance, changing position every two hours may be effective in preventing pressure ulcers, but it may wake up him up when sleeping or resting.

In this kind of situation, the author highlighted the unique benefits of a memory foam pillow.

A memory foam pillow is excellent in relieving the pressure coming from the weight of the body. The editorial discussed, "It distributes the pressure over a larger surface area, reducing the pressure on especially vulnerable parts of the body."
