Shahzad pirzada’s mns 400 alternating pressure relief system

  1. 1. Shahzad Pirzada’s MNS 400 Alternating Pressure Relief System Effectively Prevents Pressure Ulcer
  2. 2. • An ulcer is a lesion that develops on the skin or mucous membranes of the body. There are various types of ulcer that may differ in pain and severity. Ulcers, if neglected for long, can cause some serious medical complications. • Pressure ulcers, commonly known as bedsores, are the most common type of ulcer. They result from the skin getting infected from pressure and friction of the body with the mattress. • Shahzad Pirzada in collaboration with Genadyne Biotechnologies Inc. has developed the MNS 400 Alternating Pressure Relief System. It provides the much needed relief and works as a solution for your pressure ulcer.
  3. 3. • Pressure ulcer occurs due to the pressure applied on the soft tissue. This restricts the flow of flood to that part where the pressure is being applied. People who do not move about much or are bed ridden are most susceptible to getting this form of ulcer. • Certain other factors like climatic conditions, protein deficiency, diabetes, or diseases that may lead to reduced blood flow to the infected region, certain medications being taken by the patient, etc. also may lead to pressure ulcer. • The most common sites for pressure ulcers are heels, hips, sacrum, elbows, knees, and ankles, among others. Pressure ulcers are curable if detected early but they become very difficult to manage in the advanced stage.
  4. 4. • In the following section we shall look at the types, causes, and measures that can be taken to treat pressure ulcer. We shall also look at how Shahzad Pirzada’s air cell mattresses can prove to be effective protection against pressure ulcers. 1. Different Stages of Pressure Ulcer • Stage I--- The affected area shows some redness and it may be different from the rest of the skin- could be painful, warmer, cooler, softer, or firmer. There may be a little swelling but the redness is often hard to detect in people with darker skin. • Stage II--- Partial loss of skin on the affected area results in this stage of ulcer. Some blisters can also be seen around the skin.
  5. 5. • Stage III—There is full tissue loss in this stage. However, bone, tissue and muscles are not exposed. • Stage IV—There is full thickness tissue loss in this stage with exposed bone, tendons, and muscles. The wounds are shallow and may require surgery. 2. Causes of Pressure Ulcer • As the name suggests the most common cause of pressure ulcer is ‘pressure’ itself. Compression caused by the force of the bone against a surface leads to destruction of muscle cells. • This usually occurs when the patient is in the same position for a long a time. Reduced blood flow leads to skin tissue damage which can lead to necrosis if left unattended and untreated for long.
  6. 6. • It is not only that this type of ulcer solely results from the friction caused by the infected part on some surface. It may also result from pressure applied on the skin by external agents like wheelchair, braces, etc. • Climate is another important factor that may hasten the disintegration of tissue and cause pressure ulcer. The temperature and moisture of the skin in contact with an external agent can also contribute to the development of pressure ulcer. • Moisture on the skin causes the skin to become soft. The skin then becomes more prone to the effects of friction generated by mattresses or medical equipments like wheelchair.
  7. 7. 3. Conclusion • Pressure ulcer may happen due to reduced blood supply. One common example to better understand this situation is that dull ache experienced by healthy individuals while sitting in the same position for a long time. • Shahzad Pirzada’s MNS 400 Alternating Pressure Relief System mattress reduces the pressure of the patient’s body against the mattress. • This system featuring a variety of unique qualities that redistribute the pressure exerted by the patient’s body to decrease friction and maintain an adequate supply of blood to the affected areas.
