Signs and Symptoms of Pressure Ulcers (Bedsores):

Pressure ulcers happen when blood flow to a particular area of skin is cut-off, posing the most significant risk to those confined to a bed or a wheelchair as the result of another medical condition. Advanced bedsores risk developing an infection and causing more severe health problems, so identifying and treating the wounds early is important. Watch for these symptoms:
  • Skin discoloration
  • Tenderness
  • Swelling
  • Pus-like draining from wound

Risk Factors for Pressure Ulcers (Bedsores):

Various injuries, diseases, and conditions can increase your risk of developing bedsores, such as:
  • Immobility, whether due to poor health or injury
  • Diabetes
  • Poor nutrition
  • Vascular disease
  • Incontinence
  • Spinal cord injury
