Keeping patients constantly comfortable while at the hospital or at home in the recovery stages isn’t exactly the easiest task, but if you are equipped with the right medical air mattress and the right bed, it could be a lot easier for everyone involved. It is highly important that the right mattresses be used while a patient is still recovering, otherwise, it just may be the cause of numerous problems like bedsores and skin breakdown. In addition, when the right mattress is used, recovery time is vastly shortened.
There are different air mattresses, each with their own styles, comfort levels and price range. Most of the air mattresses include an inflatable filter and pump, air pad cells, removable moisture-resistant covers and full weight capabilities. Some even have alarms to notify the caregiver that the pressure has lowered.
When a patient is confined to bed (or has mobility problems), these styles of bed help prevent bedsores and can mean a world’s worth of relief to a patient as they no longer need to go through the so called “unavoidable bedsores”. The bubble pads provide a great therapeutic treatment as well. There are over 130 bubble cells in the usual air mattress to ensure maximum comfort and effectiveness of the product. For those patients who are possibly at risk of skin problems, the cushions will be able to provide relief as well as improve circulation.
There are various pressure settings on the pump that can be set to ensure best results and comfort for the patient. The pump can also be used not only to inflate the mattress, but also to deflate the air inside the cells. Aside from that, the pump also produces an efficient airflow that is double the standards to provide quick relaxation for uncomfortable patients.
Using the correct adjustable air mattress makes relief well within reach for patients that are in recovery. Always keep in mind that air mattresses are the better option as they are built to better soothe the patient regardless of the level of injury since they can be controlled and adjusted. Just by choosing the right mattress for the patient can help make healing much quicker and a much more pleasant experience.
