Prevención de úlceras por presión y lesiones musculoesqueléticas: paciente con ictus Pressure ulcer prevention and muscular and skeletal injuries: Patient with stoke

Abstract

Planteamos un caso clínico en el que enfermera y fisioterapeuta ponen en común procedimientos para mejorar la higiene postural de un paciente encamado con un accidente cerebrovascular y hemiplejia izquierda. Describimos analíticamente una intervención conjunta durante un mes. A pesar de que se ha mantenido el riesgo máximo de UPP objetivado inicialmente, durante este periodo no han aparecido úlceras, obteniendo un mantenimiento o aumento del rango de las articulaciones. Es importante un trabajo multidisciplinar que evite la aparición de úlceras por decúbito y de futuras lesiones musculoesqueléticas que dificultarían la posterior reeducación funcional del paciente.<br>We propose a case in which both a nurse and a physiotherapist analyse different procedures to improve the postural hygiene of bedridden patients with stroke and left hemiplegia. We describe analitically a joint intervention for a month. Although the maximum risk of pressure ulcer (UP) as mentioned before, has remained, ulcers have not appeared during that period, obtaining an increasing articulation range. Multidisciplinary work is important to avoid the appearance of bedsores and future muscular and skeletal injuries that would hinder the future rehabilitation of the patient
