About this book
The incidence of pressure sores is a major problem to an ever-aging society, and affects over five per cent of the hospital population. Preventive measures need to be found, and introduced. Pressure Sores - Clinical Practice and Scientific Approach discusses the why, where and what consequences. Written by internationally known specialists, it presents current scientific understanding for clinicians, paramedics, nurses and biomedical engineers. Preventive measures are emphasised throughout, and the clinical problems and technical solutions to monitor subjects at risk are discussed from a number of viewpoints.
