With more Americans needing home health care and senior care a growing
concern is how to take care of patients that are immobile including
quadriplegic patients, senior citizens, paralyzed patients and those with
limited mobility or immobile and at risk of getting bed sores.
P1900 TotalCare Sport Bed Our #1 Hospital Bed to Treat Bed Sores
Immobile patients that cannot turn themselves in bed are prone to getting
skin ulcers, also known as "bed sores", which can turn into very serious wounds
when infected. Although "pressure redistribution" foam mattresses can help
in prevention for stage 1 and 2 bed sores patients still need to be turned or
moved out of bed to ensure that these types of wounds do not develop.
There are a few options to help in developing bed sores and skin ulcers
for patients at risk of these type of injuries. "air mattress" systems are
generally regarded as one of the best ways to help with bed sore prevention
and treatment and they can be set up as a "replacement mattress" or as a
actual hospital bed with aa built in air mattress system.. One of the lowest priced
air mattress systems is the Invacare microAIR Alternating Pressure Mattress with
On-Demand Low Air Loss priced at $1,863.00. The low air loss feature provides a layer
of air conditioned air over the top of the mattress to help prevent sweating. Invacare also
offers a Invacare microAIR Lateral Rotation Mattress with a powerful blower offers greater
air output, efficient therapy cycles and quick set-up that is priced from $6,777 to $9,794.00
depending on patient weight capacity and mattress width .
One of the best "replacement mattress" models in the Sentry 1400 air mattress made by
Sentech priced at $3,777. This air mattress model includes a micro fiber technology that
pulls moisture away from the patient and a commercial grade air pump to ensure patients
of up to 500 pounds get the proper support they need from the mattress surface. These
air mattress systems come in various widths and can accommodate bariatric bed frames.
some air mattress systems are good for patients up to 500 lbs and some for patients
up to 1,000 lbs. These air mattress models are sold new and each come with
1 year warranty and include 36", 38", 42" and other bed widths.
Our best selling option to treat and prevents bed sores and skin ulcers is the
HILL ROM P1900 TotalCare Sport hospital bed. This can be a better option
in some cases because the air mattress system is connected to the bed frame and
the bed itself will sit into a full chair position to help with sitting the patient up
in a "cardiac position" increasing circalotory blood flow and also with patient
transisition for patients with immobility. The P1900 TotalCare Sport hospital bedframe
is one of a very few that sit in a chair position and can accommodate patient
weight of up to 500 lbs. One of the advantages of having the air mattress connected
to the bed frame is that the mattress has air bladders that inflate and deflate
when the bed moves allowing more versatility in bed movements and patient
positioning. Another feature the Hill Rom P1900 TotalCare Sport bed is the ability
to perform an "auto patient turning" action that has a control board that can
turn the patient left, right and center from 10 degrees to 40 degree
turns automatically without needing a caregiver to perform this action.
The "auto patient turning" ability is a huge relief to caregivers and helps
patients get the quality of care they need without the assistance of a
nurse or family member. The TotalCare Sport bed also has a "percussion -
vibration" feature that also will rotate the patient and help break up
upper respiratory congestion for patients with pneanomia and other lung
