Consensus document on device-related pressure ulcers becomes “more relevant than ever” due to COVID-19

Press/Media: Research


The Journal of Wound Care has republished a consensus document to tackle the rising rates of device-related pressure ulcers (DRPUs) among patients and now, due to COVID-19, health care professionals. The authors, Amit Gefen (Tel Aviv University, Tel Aviv, Israel) and Karen Ousey (University of Huddersfield, Huddersfield, UK) write that, amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the effects of such pressure ulcers have been brought into sharp focus, given the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) and other devices.
