Hill-Rom Introduces New Wound Therapy Surface With Innovative Safety and Treatment Features
Date:10/11/2007

nly does the new E700 surface provide the therapy pressure that ulcer patients need, it also offers them the comfort they may have been missing in traditional therapy surfaces. And, as we all know, quality rest can promote faster healing."

She continues, "A primary need for caregivers is a wound therapy surface that not only reduces shear, friction and pressure, but also helps keep the patient cool, dry and comfortable. Our new Hill-Rom E700 Wound Surface delivers these features and is a powerful tool for helping nurses provide the best in patient care by offering a new way to help manage pressure, patient microclimate and comfort."

Avoiding pressure ulcers has assumed greater importance for hospitals since the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced recently that treatment of hospital-acquired pressure ulcers will not be reimbursed as of October 2008. In addition, The Joint Commission has made pressure ulcer prevention one of its National Patient Safety Goals for 2008. The impact of these issues has been quantified in the 10th Annual International Pressure Ulcer Prevalence Survey (IPUPS) released by Hill-Rom last month. This report highlights that nearly half of adult patients in acute care facilities are at high risk for the development of pressure ulcers.

The Hill-Rom E700 Wound Surface offers a new solution and contains numerous unique features to promote patient comfort and healing:

-- PressureSmart(TM) Sensing Technology senses the patient in real time

and automatically adjusts to provide optimal pressure redistribution

as the patient sleeps, turns, sits up, and gets in and out of bed.

-- Microclimate Management is provided by E700's unique Low Airloss 3-D

fabric with crush-resistant channels. It provides airflow just below

the patient, leading to an improved ability to manage heat and

moisture, thus avoiding breakdown of the skin that could lead to
