Title (EN) PRESSURE ULCER RISK MAPPING METHOD
(FR) PROCÉDÉ DE CARTOGRAPHIE DU RISQUE D'ESCARRE
Abstract:
(EN) A method is provided for continuously monitoring pressure ulcer risk for a patient positioned on a support surface. The support surface has an associated pressure sensing device for sensing instantaneous pressure at the support surface. The method includes acquiring pressure data from the pressure sensing device to generate a two-dimensional instantaneous pressure (IP) map indicative of instantaneous pressure at locations of the support surface. The method further includes acquiring a body position model using the two-dimensional IP map, where the body position model includes body parts that are respectively mapped to locations on a pressure ulcer risk map. An accumulated risk is determined in associated with each body part. The pressure ulcer risk map is displayed in accordance with the accumulated risk. Further, a current body position model is compared to a previous body position model to detect a position change of the patient on the support surface.
(FR) L'invention porte sur un procédé visant à surveiller en continu le risque d'escarre chez un patient positionné sur une surface de support. La surface de support comporte un dispositif de détection de pression associé pour détecter la pression instantanée au niveau de la surface de support. Le procédé consiste à acquérir des données de pression provenant du dispositif de détection de pression afin de générer une carte de pression instantanée (IP) bidimensionnelle indiquant la pression instantanée à des endroits de la surface de support. Le procédé consiste également à acquérir un modèle de position du corps à l'aide de la carte IP bidimensionnelle. Le modèle de position du corps comprend des parties du corps qui sont respectivement mises en correspondance avec des emplacements sur une carte de risque d'escarre. Un risque cumulé est déterminé en association avec chaque partie du corps. La carte de risque d'escarre est affichée en fonction du risque cumulé. En outre, un modèle de position du corps courant est comparé à un modèle de position du corps précédent pour détecter un changement de position du patient sur la surface de support.
