Part II

…More About Pressure Ulcers & Staging…

STAGING PRESSURE ULCERS
  • STAGE I-
  • Intact skin with non-blanchable redness. In pigmented skin, color may be different (darker or lighter) than surrounding skin.

STAGING PRESSURE ULCERS
  • STAGE II-
  • Partial loss of dermis, a shallow open ulcer, May also be an intact or open blister.

STAGING PRESSURE ULCERS….
  • Stage III-Full thickness tissue loss. Subcutaneous fat may be visible, but bone, tendon, and muscles are not.
  • Further description: The depth of a stage III ulcer varies by anatomical location.The bridge of the nose, occiput, and malleolus do not have subcutaneous tissue, and stage III ulcers can be shallow

  • Stage IV-Full thickness tissue loss with exposed bone, tendon, or muscle. Slough or eschar may be present. Often includes undermining or tunneling.
staging dti
STAGING…..DTI
  • The newest category for Pressure Ulcers is Deep Tissue Injury (“DTI”)….
  • Purple or maroon area of discolored intact skin or blood filled blister due to damage of underlying soft tissue.
  • May evolve to become covered with thick eschar. May rapidly expose underlying layers, even with optimal treatment
staging unstageable
STAGING…… “Unstageable”
  • Full thickness tissue loss in which the base of the ulcer is covered by slough and or eschar.
  • Until enough slough or eschar is removed to expose the base of the wound bed, the true depth and therefore the stage cannot be determined.
