Hello .. nI want to ask if to clean a pressure ulcer wound, can you use the otsu – ns infusion fluid (SOCL 0.9) .. ??
Decubitus ulcer is an ulcer / wound that usually occurs in the back area due to lying down for a long time. This usually occurs in people with a history of stroke, diabetes, or who need prolonged bed rest.
Decubitus ulcers require good and correct treatment. Untreated pressure ulcers can lead to infection. You can clean the pressure ulcer using NS (normal saline). Apart from NS, you can also clean with NaCl infusion fluids. You can buy this liquid at a pharmacy.
In addition, it is important to carry out routine controls to the surgeon, so that the doctor can check the patient's condition periodically. Perform left tilt or right tilt periodically every few hours to reduce pressure on the back.
