Abstract:
Poster presented at AORN's 58th Annual Congress: Literature review revealed that there is a need for a pressure ulcer risk evaluation scale specific to perioperative patients. A perioperative tool, Pressure Ulcer Risk Evaluation (PURE), was developed by a perioperative nurse in cooperation with a multidisciplinary team, including a wound care specialist and dietician. The purpose of the tool is to predict pressure ulcers in the perioperative population. The scale incorporates two elements from the Braden scale: activity and nutrition. The PURE scale mirrors the scoring of the Braden scale. The lower the score, the higher the risk. The PURE scale is used preoperatively and intraoperatively to assess a patients risk for developing pressure ulcers during surgery. Preoperatively, the scale evaluates age, activity, malnutrition risk, skin assessment, previous history of ulcers, diabetes, hematocrit, and cardiovascular surgery. Intraoperatively, the scale evaluates anesthesia risk score (ASA), use of a warming blanket under the patient, use of extracorporeal circulation, hypotensive episodes (diastolic less than 60mm Hg), operating room time, surgical position, and hypothermic episodes (less than 36c) during surgery. The PURE scale was validated by comparing results to the Braden scale for 40 orthopedic patients. Results indicated that the PURE tool predicted surgical patients at risk. The PURE scale will be implemented in a research study of 200 cardiovascular patients to achieve pressure ulcer risk reduction at The Methodist Hospital in Houston, Texas.
