Air-Fluidized Therapy in Patient with Suspected Deep Tissue Injury
Allen L, et al. | Journal of Wound, Ostomy & Continence Nursing | 2012

In this case series, 5 patients with 10 sDTI were placed on the Clinitron® Rite Hite® AFT therapy surface within 12 hours of having the sDTI diagnosed and were also treated with standard wound care. Even with optimal treatment, sDTI wounds may rapidly progress to Stage III-IV pressure ulcers. Of the sDTIs identified: 4 healed prior to discharge, 4 evolved into stage II ulcers, and 2 remained classified as sDTI at discharge.
