Relapse prophylaxis and prevention with LIGASANO®

LIGASANO® white is a therapeutically effective PUR foam dressing with a wide range of applications.

Padding

Almost consistent distribution of the contact pressure

Positioning

Avoiding pressure peaks

Prevention

Pressure relief through pressure distribution

Intertrigoprophylaxis and therapy

Sweat is absorbed - for normal skin hydration

Relapse prophylaxis

A further decubitus risk is effectively prevented

Intensive care

Avoiding pressure ulcers in intensive care


Dr.Guck Lagerung

The rapidly falling pressure tension of LIGASANO® white allows a nearly consistent distribution of the contact pressure and thus avoidance of dreaded pressure peaks.

LIGASANO® white and LIGASANO® green are easy to cut. Thus arise by the ingenuity of the nursing staff adapted positioning aids such as rollers, wedges, heel shoes, etc.

The mechanical stimulus of LIGASANO® white promotes peripheral blood circulation during skin contact, increasing the pressure resistance of the patient. Sweat is absorbed, thus normal skin moisture and in conjunction with the mechanical stimulus also skin care. The preservation of the physiological skin environment is supported.

With a suitable thickness, LIGASANO® does not wrinkle, a further pressure ulcer risk is effectively prevented. The patient is always stored directly on the skin on LIGASANO® white, without intermediate layer.

 


Application examples in the prevention of relapse prophylaxis and prevention

 

Pressure relief through pressure distribution with LIGASANO® white and LIGASANO® green ("the anatomical bed"):

This decubitus prophylaxis can be set up on almost any base. Starting point: The patient is lying in bed, they want to make the bed fresh anyway.

 

Anatomische Bett LIGASANO 1

Feel where the patient is not or not at all laid up. This is always between the pressure peaks shown here.

LIGASANO Anatomisches Bett 2

Fold the edge of the bed sheet back so that you can place markings directly on the mattress with strips of adhesive tape.

LIGASANO Anatomisches Bett 3

Mark the places on the mattress where you want to cushion. Cut the appropriate pads and place them in the marked areas.

LIGASANO Anatomisches Bett 4

Above it comes the bed sheet and then the patient.

1 cm LIGASANO® white directly in the skin contact prevents wrinkles, promotes blood circulation and regulates skin hydration.

 

LIGASANO Anatomisches Bett 5

You have to do this positioning only once, the padding always stays in bed, directly on the mattress. Preferably, you cover the existing mattress with the LIGASANO® green - padding on top with a fitted sheet. This fitted sheet is now an integral part of the mattress together with the padding.

The goal is that the patient rests everywhere in the bed with the same pressure (= pressure relief through pressure distribution). Your flat hand pushed under the patient is a very sensitive measuring instrument.

The patient will no longer be able to slip around in bed from top to bottom or vice versa, because he feels well bedded and is also orthopedically correct. The first time you do this you might have to improve a little bit the next day and the day after, but you'll see, once you've made some positioning, it's easy. Time expenditure: once approx. 10 - 15 minutes.

The described positioning does not release from the regular repositioning at appropriate intervals and is normally suitable for positioning in an oblique or lateral position without any changes.

Extraordinary physical conditions (such as contractures) can also be compensated by adjusting the padding.

The "anatomical bed" not only provides pressure relief through pressure distribution, but also for anatomically favorable support of the spine, which has a favorable effect on well-being.

►No shearing forces, as the patient can not slip out
►No moist intertrigo-promoting microclimate

 

The seats of wheelchairs, therapy chairs, but also often the seating furniture are covered in care facilities with liquid-repellent plastics. This has the consequence that (especially in summer), the residents sweat on these seats increasingly. The skin becomes moist and therefore more sensitive to intertrigo, fungal infections and inflammation.

Another disadvantage of the liquid-repellent seat covers is their smooth surface. The patients slip deeper and deeper in the chair or wheelchair, and shear forces have an effect on the sore-decubitus sacral region.

 

Our solution:

Lay LIGASANO® green in the size 55x45x2 cm in several layers under the clothed buttocks on the seat!

LIGASANO® green provides a healthy microclimate in the seating area due to its open-pored structure. In addition, it helps to reduce pressures peaks and, due to its surface condition, ensures that the patient in the seating furniture can not slip forward. Unless he wants this actively.

For a normal 70-80 kilogram resident, take three LIGSANO® green sheets in size 55x45x2cm and place them on the seat.

Place the patient on the LIGASANO® padding and feel between the seat and LIGSANO® for the ischial tuberosities and other bony structures on the occupant's compartment following the appropriate patient information.

If bony structures are still noticeable, place another LIGASANO® green on the seat until nothing is felt.


Intertrigoprophylaxis and dealing with contractures

In bedridden patients and joint immobilization, contracture (joint stiffness) and muscular atrophy (muscle contraction) may develop.

Particularly at risk are patients with inflammatory or degenerative joint diseases, but also patients whose joints are immobilized, e.g. by restraint, paralysis or weakness. Measures to maintain an intact musculoskeletal system and functional joints are movement exercises, mobilization and appropriate positioning.

What is an intertrigo?

Where there is direct skin-to-skin contact, e.g. in skin folds or where for other reasons no air comes to the skin, sweat can not evaporate and the skin softens (maceration).

In this humid environment, bacteria and fungi can multiply, the skin eventually becomes sore and intertrigo has developed.

Intertrigo

Below are some suggestions for contracture and intertrigoprophylaxis:

Avoid skin-to-skin contact (intertrigoprophylaxis and therapy)

Not only as a prevention, but also as a therapy support for fungal treatments in conjunction with an antifungal or as a therapy itself, if the skin is only irritated or easily inflamed. Also for the abdominal fold for chest / breasts or groin between toes and fingers
