Abstract/OtherAbstract:
To assess the relationships among pressure ulcer prevalence, body mass index (BMI), and weight, this report analyzed the US data from the 2006 and 2007 International Pressure Ulcer Prevalencetrade mark Surveys. Findings indicated an overall reduction in pressure ulcer prevalence from 2004 and 2005 to 2006 and 2007; there was a higher prevalence of pressure ulcers in patients with low BMI and patients with both low and high weights. One in 10 patients were extremely obese.
