Alternating Pressure vs True Low air loss

What is the Difference between Alternating Pressure with Low Air Loss and True Low Air Loss Therapy?

Alternating Pressure mattress systems are designed to heal and prevent bed sores through the use of alternating pressure with low air loss. The mattress uses 20 air cells (tubes) that inflates and deflates under the patient allowing blood flow to reach the area to heal and prevent bedsores. The low air loss feature circulates air through the cells in the trunk and pelvis area. It is used to prevent and cut down on moisture helping the patient to remain cool and dry.  Alternating pressure mattress systems use a low output pump that is whisper quiet. The pump builds pressure into the mattress and then begins to alternate based on a predetermined cycle time. As the mattress builds pressure air circulates out of small laser holes within the center area of the mattress. This helps to keep the patient cool as it prevents heat and moisture buildup. In most cases this therapy does an excellent job for healing and prevention of various stages of bed sores depending on the mattress system selected. Some of the most popular Alternating pressure mattress systems for healing and prevention can be found here.

 

There are instances when a patient cannot tolerate normal alternating pressure therapy. This can happen to some patients that are subject to stage 4 bed sores, fibromyalgia, MS patients, Cancer, Burn victims, etc. When the patient requires a mattress system that is more sensitive to these conditions a true low air loss mattress system is used. True Low Air Loss Mattress systems use a blower based system that circulates air constantly throughout the entire air mattress. True low air loss therapy wicks away moisture from the skin and often self adjusts to the patient to reduce pressure healing stage 4 bed sores. True low air loss therapy is elite within the support surface category for patients looking to heal bed sores. True Low air loss systems are the most comfortable hospital air mattresses available today. Some true low air loss mattress systems also offer a “pulsation” feature incorporated into the pump. The pulsation creates a hammock effect inflating and deflating the cells to reduce pressure offering additional comfort to the patient as they sleep. When in doubt the true low air loss systems are the most comfortable and best healing systems available in the wound care market.

Affordable Air Mattress to Prevent Bedsores

I am looking for a medical mattress for my brother who is currently in a assisted facility in Florida. He is experiencing bruising on his skin and is starting to develop small areas of redness. Can you recommend an air mattress that will prevent him from developing bedsores. I am looking for something affordable as we are paying for this out of pocket.

We spoke with Betty and asked a few general questions about her brother and his condition. Her brother currently needed an alternating pressure mattress for prevention and basic healing. He was 5’6″ and weighed 170 lbs. The family was paying for this out of pocket and they wanted something that was more long term care than a standard alternating pressure overlay.

We recommended the Pro 3000. This alternating pressure mattress was ideal for patients under 250 lbs and was great for healing and prevention.  The patient would have the ability to adjust the firmness and softness of the mattress. The air mattress is 8″ thick and will offer pressure relief and low air loss therapy. Most importantly the mattress was on sale for $499.00 including free shipping. This long term care alternating pressure mattress was the ideal solution. It gave the family a quality product that worked to heal and prevent his bed sores and they save money in the long run by purchasing a much better alternating pressure mattress than the standard app bubble pad products.

Best Hospital Air Mattress for a Patient with MS and excessive sweating at night

I wanted to share this story about a customer from Texas who tried many alternating pressure mattress systems and was frustrated because he could not get comfortable at night. This customer had problems with excessive perspiration and heat and was constantly sweating and uncomfortable. He recently lost movement in his legs due to the “MS” and was experiencing skin break down on his calf and ankles. He asked for a recommendation for a mattress that would be comfortable and would prevent and control the excessive perspiration he was experiencing every night.

We explained this is definitely a difference between an alternating pressure mattress with a low air loss feature and a “True Low Air Loss mattress” This customer needed a true low air loss mattress system. These hospital grade low air mattresses work using a blower based pump. This means it is constantly pumping air into the mattress using 1200 liters of air per minute. This powerful pump is constantly circulating air through the mattress allowing the air to flow through laser holes in the mattress to keep the patient cool and dry. This blower based true low air loss mattress controls moisture and heat buildup while protecting the skin.

The alternating pressure with “low air loss” is good for normal pressure relief but was not enough to control the excessive sweating this particular patient was experiencing. Low output alternating pressure therapy will only circulate air while the mattress is in between cycles not continuously like this patient needed.

If you are a patient that is experiencing excessive sweating please feel free to call us so we can help you find the mattress that would be best to suit your needs. Our 24 hour on staff customer care would be happy to listen and explain the differences to help you select the best hospital air mattress for you or your family member

My Mother has bed sores and won’t sleep in a hospital bed

My mother has slept in her lazy boy recliner chair for the past 10 years. She has difficulty breathing and will not sleep in her bed. I am not sure what to do. Can you suggest anything that may help her heal her bed sores even though she sleeps in her recliner chair?

G Carter

We received this email from a daughter who was extremely frustrated and was not sure what do do. Her mother had begin to develop a stage 2 bed sore and the recommended treatment was an alternating pressure mattress for her hospital bed. The major problem was her mother refused to sleep in a hospital bed and did not want it brought into her room. Luckily we had a solution. We recently partnered with an american company that duplicated the same medical pressure relief benefits that were used in a alternating pressure mattress and designed it for a recliner chair. This recliner chair for bed sores works with their existing chair and offers alternating pressure therapy healing up to stage 4 bed sores.

This recliner chair mattress for bed sores has been exactly what Ms Carter needed. It fit nicely over her existing chair and it provided the alternating therapy that allowed her bed sores to clear up.
