Low Air Loss Mattress


 Filter

Low air loss mattresses float the patient on air-filled cells while circulating air across the skin to reduce moisture and help maintain a constant skin interface pressure. A typical Low air loss mattress utilizes 100-150 liters of air per minute to maintain normal skin temperature and moisture levels. Low air loss mattresses are used in hospitals, nursing homes and other long term medical establishments to prevent or alleviate pressure ulcers in patients who are unable to move on their own.

Therapeutic Support Surfaces like Low air loss mattresses are a proven way to help prevent and treat pressure ulcers. They come in many shapes and sizes, and there are numerous types available. Some models are designed to be placed on top of the existing mattresses, while some models replace the existing mattresses. To achieve the correct results in the prevention and treatment of pressure ulcers, the patient must be moved periodically, or the pressure must move itself. Some Low air loss mattresses actually change pressure from one point to another on the patient's body.
