If a person is bedridden for a long time due to an injury or illness, it is important to resort to the use of an anti-decubitus mattress.
This aid allows an adequate transpiration of the skin, avoiding the formation of lesions, cutaneous and subcutaneous sores.
In the most severe cases, tissue ischemia can also occur: this pathology involves the closure of pores and capillaries, causing a degenerative process that can evolve into necrosis due to lack of oxygen.
All of this can be avoided through the use of appropriate anti-decubitus aids.
In addition to mattresses, anti-decubitus pillows are also available to provide additional comfort to the lives of bedridden people.
