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.
