Pressure redistribution surfaces (airbeds) are a vital part of any skin program. In over 25 years of serving the medical community I have yet to see a skilled nursing facility, hospice program, hospital, or in-patient rehabilitation facility that did not integrate airbeds into their plan of care. They can be a double-edged sword though. When set inappropriately these devices can increase pressure and often lead to a higher risk of falls.
