Treatment of pressure sores

The most important first step in the treatment of pressure sores is relief of pressure from the affected area, which may be achieved by repositioning the patient or using pressure distributive mattresses. If there is dead tissue, it needs to be removed by surgery in order to accelerate healing. Treatment of any infection with antiseptic dressings is also important. In addition, treatment of associated conditions like diabetes and sepsis, and ensuring proper nutrition, either orally or by intravenous supplementation is important. The patient and the caregivers need proper education for control of ulcers and prevention or recurrence.
