Abstract

It is generally accepted that the apparent increase in the incidence of pressure sores is the direct result of modern medical techniques. Drugs which prolong life in the terminally ill present to the nursing fraternity a new breed of patients who are gravely ill and in whom autolytic activity may already be present. However, there is no room for complacency as there is a potential for considerable improvement in patient management.
