Are Your Hillrom Centrella Surfaces Showing Their Age?
The American Hospital Association states that the lifespan for hospital bed surfaces is five years.1 If your Centrella surfaces have exceeded their useful life, they may no longer be living up to their full potential. Replace your Centrella surface options today, and see for yourself how new surfaces can help you prevent pressure injuries, support patient comfort and address clinical burden.2
Pressure Injuries Are Pervasive and Urgent Issues
The clinical, economic and humanistic burdens are significant. In the United States alone:
Patients die from pressure injuries every year3
is spent on hospital-acquired pressure injuries — 59% of which stem from Stage III and IV events3
of patients with pressure injuries experience pain stemming from these conditions4
What are Pressure Injury Risk Factors?
Both environmental and patient pressure injury risk factors come into play:5
- Skin status
- Mobility limitations
- Perfusion, circulation or oxygenation factors
- Body temperature
- Nutrition limits
- Sensory perception limits
- Older age
Choose the Right Therapeutic Surface For Your Patients
The Centrella bed’s innovative support surfaces help address common causes of pressure injuries like pressure, shear and moisture.2
Provide on-demand microclimate
management with an integrated pump.
Deliver superior pressure redistribution
and microclimate management.
|Feature||Centrella pro+ Surface||Centrella max Surface|
Remove excess heat and moisture from patients’ skin.2
|Weight-Based Pressure Redistribution
Automatically adjust for optimal pressure
redistribution, shear management and patient comfort.
|Wider Surface Option
Accommodate larger patients with 36” or 40” width options.
|Bleach-Resistant Top Cover
Help prevent fluid ingress with RF-welded seams.2
Eliminate time and effort required to install external pumps
or transfer patients to low air loss surfaces.2
|Quiet Therapeutic Experience
Reduce noise with an integrated pump
that is 36% quieter than comparable surfaces.6
Help provide stability and support.
|Advanced Bottoming Out Protection
Help prevent excess pressure and protect patient safety.
Let patients adjust softness in the head and seat sections.
