Pressure Ulcer Prevention Chest Rolls

Pressure Ulcer Prevention Chest Rolls

posted by Laurie Phromkharanourak on Feb 13, 2018 12:04 pm

I'm on a pressure ulcer prevention team looking to reduce pressure ulcers attributed to the OR. Currently my team is looking at pressure ulcers occuring on the chest. Does anyone have any knowledge of a great chest roll product? We currently position patients prone with chest rolls on both Jackson and on Skytron tables.

Thanks for your time,
Laurie
