Description

Preventing pressure ulcers in the pre-operative area is a critical responsibility of the perioperative nurse. It starts with an in-depth assessment of the patient’s skin preoperatively and again at discharge from the operative area. Tools used to assess the patient’s skin will be presented in this continuing education activity. The perioperative risk factors for skin and deep tissue injuries are explained and differentiated as extrinsic and intrinsic. A comprehensive list of risks is offered and identified by stages of care. The various intraoperative patient positions are described and the corresponding vulnerable anatomy sites are identified. Intervention strategies that the nurse should incorporate into the care are outlined.

Objectives

Learning Objectives:
1. Define MASD, pressure ulcer and skin tears.
2. Describe tools used to assess the patient’s skin and evaluate the risks of developing a skin injury during their perioperative care.

4. Discuss how MASD, pressure ulcers and skin tears are influenced by the surgical procedure.
5. Identify evidence-based interventions to help prevent skin injury from occurring in the surgical patients.
