COST EFFECTIVENESS OF AN AIR-INFLATED STATIC OVERLAY IN PRESSURE ULCER PREVENTION

A randomized trial

Using an ISO* for pressure ulcer prevention on moderate to very high risk patients is
as efficient as the rented surfaces (MSO** or LALDM***) but significantly decreases costs.
Results of this study may give others the incentive to examine the curative properties of
this cost efficient surface with patients living with existing pressure ulcers. The challenge
of finding a cost effective curative approach for treating pressure ulcers is a valuable asset
for the health care system.
Ease of use of the equipment and patient transfer are important factors to consider and
would be worthy aspects to explore in a future study.
