Microclimate management as a skin integrity protection strategy
“Controlling microclimate is an important and often overlooked area of pressure ulcer prevention” Dr. Joyce Black, former president, National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel
Microclimate Management is the critical link to skin integrity. When skin temperature rises excess moisture or humidity can build up on the skin’s surface.
In this webinar we will explore why the microclimate can be seen as an indirect risk of developing a pressure injury. We will investigate what can be done to manage the microclimate and limit the possible damage thresholds for the skin and underlying soft tissues.
