Question:

Of the options below, which one best helps reduce pressure on the bony prominences?

A Flotation mattress
explanation

A bedridden customer can quickly develop pressure sores if allowed to remain in one position. Repositioning the patient at least every two hours to prevent the skin from breaking down. Utilize pillows to support the customer and to relieve places where skin can rub, such as between the legs or at the tailbone. Always keep the skin clean and dry. Although a sheepskin on the bed or wheelchair provides extra padding, it does not replace repositioning. Observe the skin for reddened areas and mark them to the nurse. Special beds and flotation mattresses are helpful in preventing pressure sores.

There are definitely a few mistakes in this app, some of the answers are just plain wrong so make sure this is not your only source of study material. Other than that this app is very helpful.

I would love to give this app 5 stars but in the Nursing Skills section it does not allow you to go on to part 7. After you get to part 6 it either just never loads or it tells you to go to part 7 and does absolutely nothing.
