Pressure ulcers are caused when an area of skin, and the tissues below, are damaged as a result of being placed under pressure sufficient to impair its blood supply. Left untreated these can lead to significant health problems, loss of limbs or death. Therefore, it is imperative that all professionals working with at risk adults are aware of strategies to prevent and treat these localised sores.
