Caring for patients at increased risk of pressure injuries during COVID-19 is creating new challenges for healthcare professionals, and you may now have to care for patients in the prone position. Placing patients in the prone position improves oxygenation however, it also puts them at risk of developing pressure injuries on parts of the body where they may not normally occur.
To protect skin at risk and treat injuries if they occur, Coloplast Wound & Skin Care has solutions to support you in caring for your patients. We have developed a poster with information on which areas of the body to be especially aware of. We have solutions to both protect skin at risk with Comfeel® Plus Transparent and to treat new injuries with Biatain® Silicone or Biatain® Silicone Lite.
