Abstract The assessment of patients' risk for developing pressure ulcers is a routine and fundamental nursing process undertaken to prevent avoidable harm to patients in all care settings. Many risk assessment tools are currently used in clinical practice, however no individual tool is recommended by advisory bodies such as the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence or the European Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel. The evidence base on the value of structured risk assessment tools in reducing the incidence or severity of pressure ulcers is poor. This purpose of this article is to provide a clinimetric anal...

Pressure ulcers are highly prevalent among adult and elderly patients where risk factors vary. In addition to guidelines to the conventional treatment, some auxiliary therapies such as photobiomodulation have shown promising results in wound healing. In this systematic review, only 5 papers were selected according to the eligibility criteria of this research. It was observed that PBMT red wavelength, similar to standard care, promoted tissue repair with a reduced lesion area. AbstractEvaluation of photobiomodulation therapy (PBMT) in the treatment of pressure ulcers in adults and the elderly. Systematic review, based on th...
