Discover the Dolphin OR Pad

Treat and Prevent Pressure Ulcers with the Dolphin SystemTM .

Dolphin Pad® Advantages

Did you know?
• Surgical procedures over 3 hours in length put patients at risk for development of pressure ulcers.
• Statistics show that an average incidence of 7% of all patients enduring procedures over three hours in length develop pressure ulcers during the recovery process.
• The overall average incidence more than triples for the more lengthy cardio-vascular procedures to over 21%.
• Treatment of these pressure ulcers results in increased length of stay (LOS) of 10 days or more.
• The CMS regulations implemented October 2, 2008 state that facility acquired pressure ulcers are deemed preventable and the facility bears the cost of treatment, without re-imbursement.

 

What is the Dolphin 900T OR System?

Did you know that surgical procedures over 3 hours in length put patients at risk for development of pressure ulcers? The Fluid Immersion Simulation® Technology utilized in the treatment of pressure ulcers has been incorporated in a replacement OR table pad system to reduce the risk of facility acquired pressure ulcers from the OR suite. OR pad replacement sections are customized to fit your existing OR table tops. The Dolphin pump/controller then engages the patient and maintains the patient at “equilibrium” throughout the procedure, providing a platform for deterrence of OR acquired pressure ulcers by reducing pressure between tissue and bone.

The Dolphin Pad® is a surgical overlay system that has an active feedback pressure sensor. This feedback loop adjusts the table to have minimal amounts of pressure in all bony prominances. Gone are the days where patients were placed on the same surface regardless of their body shapes and sizes.

The Dolpin Pad® actively adjusts to fit each individual uniquely. Only in this way can we ensure the best pressure reduction possible to mitigate the chance of Operating Room acquired pressure ulcers.        

The patent-protected Microsolo 900T and Auto Vector are the only portable, multi-surface, pressure redistribution systems available on the market. The intelligent based software system simulates a fluid environment which enhances the prevention and management of pressure ulcers, skin flaps and grafts. 

Solution

Wound Systems offers the technology of the Dolphin Bed® incorporated in the Dolphin OR Pad customized to fit your OR Table top to help you prevent OR acquired pressure ulcers, improve patient outcomes and avoid costs.
