Description

Support surfaces are an integral intervention for both the prevention and treatment of pressure ulcers; however, the terms and definitions associated with support surfaces have been extremely inconsistent for many years. Many groups have attempted the compilation of a comprehensive set of definitions to aid clinicians in determining the appropriate support surface based on patient need. But this has ended up confusing clinicians and making it difficult at best to make the right choices. This program discusses the various terms and definitions associated with support surfaces in order to gain a better understanding of the terminology. This in turn will assist in making the appropriate choice based on patient assessment and needs identified.

Objectives

Learning Objectives:
1. Describe historical characterization and classification of support surfaces.
2. Define CMS Group I, II, and III support surfaces.
3. Describe the Support Surface Standards Initiative (S3I) terms and definitions categories.
