Tips for buying Alternating Pressure Mattress

  1. These beds should support a maximum weight of 159 kg, which should accommodate most patients; however, for bariatric patients, they should support 272 kg or more, depending on the individual patient.
  2. Beds should have casters of at least 12 cm in diameter. To ensure that the bed remains stationary when necessary, brakes are required.
  3. For safety purposes, the beds should include CPR controls that, when triggered, provide a hard surface on which CPR can be performed.
  4. Noise levels of operating these beds should not exceed 35 dBA, which is the typical sound level in a quiet hospital.
  5. When the bed or mattress is not functioning within specified ranges, the system should alarm.
  6. To allow constant functioning of the bed during transport and power outages, a battery backup or other feature should be available.
  7. Specialty care beds are expensive and have limited application. Buyers should compare the cost of buying vs. leasing them when needed. Facilities should ask suppliers for training programs for clinical personnel who will be using these beds.
  8. Specialty bed frames should have side rails that can be locked in the upright position. To prevent slippage, mattress overlays should have straps.
  9. There is no compelling evidence that one support surface performed better than others, under all circumstances.
  10. The surface should match the patient, so when selecting a support surface, caregivers should consider the clinical condition of the patient, characteristics of the care setting, and characteristics of the support surface.
  11. Low-air-loss and alternating-pressure mattress replacements and overlays are often cheaper than low-air-loss beds because they use a standard bed as the platform. However, Facilities should know that mattress overlays and replacements may have a shorter life span than low-air-loss beds.
  12. Mattresses and overlays eliminate the need to store two large bed frames because an existing bed frame is used; however, mattress overlays and mattress replacements may not be compatible with all hospital beds.
  13. Buyers need to determine whether air-fluidized or low-air-loss therapies are necessary in the hospital. Home use of these therapies may be a better option.
  14. Facilities should keep in mind that surfaces that can be laundered require cleaning and disinfecting, especially in the case of overlays and mattress replacements. Specially treated surfaces may require chemical disinfection or other special handling.
