Discover how pressure ulcers form and learn how to prevent pressure ulcers from developing during noninvasive ventilation (NIV).
A localized red area that is warm to the touch. The term pressure injury is used as the skin is not yet broken at this stage.
A pressure ulcer is visible as the skin is broken and partially lost.
The pressure ulcer and tissue necrosis extends through all the skin layers. The underlying fat layer is also visible.
The pressure ulcer and tissue necrosis extends down to the fat, muscle and bone or cartilage.
A mask that is too big places unnecessary pressure on the face.
A mask that is too small causes unwanted friction.
Shifting the mask without loosening the straps pulls on the face causing unwanted friction and shear forces.
If the mask is not sitting symmetrically, it may place extra pressure on facial areas.
