Study of the Cutaneous Microcirculation in Elderly People
Not Provided

Pressure ulcers are a common and frustrating problem and their treatment is critical in elderly people. The interaction between external pressure and the skin vascular is central to the prevention of pressure ulcers. It is only through understanding of the physiology of cutaneous perfusion and its relation to external pressure or different stimuli that effective preventive measures to reduce skin beakdown can be adapted in clinical practice.
