Safe patient handling: Bariatrics

  1. 1. Safe patient handling Bariatrics Håkan Skenhede
  2. 2. Principles!• A principlecan be used in manythousand different ways.• A technique is just an example on how to solve a veryspecific problem
  3. 3. Naturalpattern The way a strong andhealthy patient is moving
  4. 4. Compensatorypatterns The way a person is moving trying to compensate for their ”problem”
  5. 5. Standing up - Naturalpattern• Naturalpattern Stand up quickly and writedown: 1. what you do 2. in what order you do it and 3. in whichdirection you do it
  6. 6. Standing up Compensatorypattern for a bariatric patient1. Identify the ”problem”2. Stand up and try to act as you have the ”problem”3. Create a techniquebased on the compensatorypattern and goodergonomics
  7. 7. Back in chair Naturalpattern• Naturalpattern Start in a relaxed position and move back in the chairquicklyand writedown: 1. what you do 2. in what order you do it and 3. in whichdirection you do it
  8. 8. Back in chair Compensatorypattern for a bariatric patient1. Identify the ”problem”2. Move back and try to act as you have the ”problem”3. Create a techniquebased on the compensatorypattern and goodergonomics
  9. 9. Crossing legs in bed Naturalpattern• Naturalpattern Start in a supine position and cross your legs and writedown: 1. what you do 2. in what order you do it and 3. in whichdirection you do it
  10. 10. Crossing legs in bed Compensatorypattern for a bariatric patient1. Identify the ”problem”2. Move back and try to act as you have the ”problem”3. Create a techniquebased on the compensatorypattern and goodergonomics
  11. 11. Biomechanicswhenlifting Naturalpattern• What is the distancebetweenlifting points in a supine position. Attach a sling in a supine position and measure the distancebetween the uppertwo loops and the two loops from the legparts.Distanceis:
  12. 12. Biomechanicswhenlifting Compensatorypattern• What is the distancebetweenlifting points in a seated position. Attach a sling in a seated position and measure the distancebetween the uppertwo loops and the two loops from the legparts. Distance for a ”M” person is: Distance for a ”XXL” person is:
  13. 13. 2 motors on onetrack an automaticallyadaptingcrossbarWhen you use 2 separate motors, one for the loops by the shoulder and one for the loops by the legs you can:• Have a ”cross slingbar” (4-point) that automaticallyadjustbetween the measurement for supine AND seated lift.• Adjust the sitting angle by raising/lowering just one motor.
  14. 14. Sleeping on a sling Is that ok?• Howwould this affect the pressure?• Howwould it affectshearing?
  15. 15. Turning with a hoist• Easy to turn• Easy to keep patient on the side
