Mattress Systems, Alternating-Pressure

Definition : Mattress systems that include a mattress made of multiple air cells, which are cyclically inflated and deflated in such a way that the inflated sacks cells support the patient and the deflated ones give pressure relief to prevent maceration of the patient's skin. Control units connected to the mattress regulate the cycles of inflation and deflation. These systems are typically used in the care and management of patients at risk for, or who already have compromised skin surfaces, such as burn patients, patients at risk for developing decubitus ulcers, patients with decubitus ulcers, etc.
