Air Fluidized Therapy Use in Patients With Suspected Deep Tissue Injury - A Case Series
Allen L, et al. | 2011

Patients with suspected deep tissue injuries (sDTI) were placed on the Clinitron® Rite Hite® bed, treated with standard care, and assessed until resolution of their sDTI. Out of 5 patients and 10 ulcers, 4 healed before discharge, 2 remained at discharge, and 4 became Stage II ulcers. Patients placed on air-fluidized therapy had significantly less skin breakdown than expected.
