Nursing 101 - Pressure Ulcer

The first indication that a pressure ulcer may be developing is blanching (becoming pale or white) of the skin over the area under pressure. Insufficient blood circulation makes the skin appear paler than in areas where circulation is adequate. When the pressure is relieved, the area will appear red and feel warm. Yellow Skin is indicative of jaundice. Stage 1 pressure ulcer is a define area of persistent redness.
