To prevent this from occurring with the next dressing change, there are several actions that you could take. Which one listed below would you not do?reduce pressure by 25mmHg.turn therapy off 15 minutes prior to dressing change and inject saline into dressingswitch patient to intermittent suctionapply a contact layer to wound bed The patient has a very large abdominal incision with four foam dressings in the wound bed. The settings are: pressure- 125mmHg, low intensity, and continuous therapy. After a week of therapy it is noted that exudate is leaking out of the dressing between changes. Based on this information, what possible changes to the therapy settings would you make?Pressure- 100mmHg, low intensity, intermittent settingPressure- 150mmHg, high intensity, continuous settingPressure- 125mmHg, low intensity, continuous settingPressure- 200mmHg, high intensity, intermittent setting The physician orders NPWT for an elderly lady with a history of heart disease, on anticoagulants. She has a Stage III pressure ulcer on her coccyx. What initial KCI setting would you select, based on her assessment criteria?Intermittent suction @ 100mmHgContinuous suction @ 100mmHgIntermittent suction @ 150mmHgContinuous suction @ 50mmHg When determining pressure settings which of the following is not a factor for consideration?Obesity/ malnutritionArterial insufficiencyAmbulationPain What initial setting for the S&N gauze NPWT would you select, based on her assessment criteria?Continuous suction @ 120mmHgIntermittent suction @ 120mmgIntermittent suction @ 80mmHgContinuous suction @ 40mmHg-80mHg Time is Up!
