A pressure injury is defined as “localised damage to the skin and/or underlying soft tissue usually over a bony prominence or related to medical or other devices.
Pressure wounds are caused by pressure against the skin that limits blood flow to the skin. Limited movement can make skin vulnerable to damage and may lead to the development of pressure injury.
In this week’s podcast episode, Marni will be speaking with Lisa Cox to debunk the myths and misconceptions about pressure injury.
Lisa acquired multiple pressure injuries in her early twenties following a brain haemorrhage and over 1 year of hospitalisation the first time. Her injuries have been significant but it was a pressure injury that appeared like a small pimple that led to significant discomfort.
Today, Lisa speaks at staff education events and medical conferences about the long-term effects of pressure injuries and has helped produce prevention/care information for patients and their families.
Listen with us in an in-depth talk about the cause, prevention and treatment of pressure injuries.
