Question and answer
Q: describe how incorrect handling and moving techniques can damage the skin
A: A pressure sore is caused by unrelieved pressure on the skin, by friction or by ?tearing/shearing? forces. [ Pressure, the single most important factor in the development of sores, occurs mainly when the individual remains unmoved for inappropriate periods or exerts repeated pressure in one area, such as when using poorly adjusted mobility aids. It mainly affects the skin. Friction and ?tearing?
forces are created by repetitive movement, such as sliding down in the bed or the use of poor moving and handling techniques, and causes damage to and distortion of the underlying tissue. ]
