Span America PressureGuard APM Alternating Pressure Air Therapy Mattress does not create extreme pressure gradients between inflated and deflated cylinders. Its Geo-Matt anti-shearing surface forms a comfortable and therapeutic interface between the air system and the user. It absorbs and smooths sharp pressure drop-offs that other surfaces can't, while the air system does the heavy lifting below, alternating weight-bearing across the surface in ten-minute cycles.

FAQs of PressureGuard APM Mattress

Q. What is the difference between alternating pressure and low-air-loss?

Alternating pressure mattresses consist of individual air tubes that inflate and deflate on a set schedule, and in an A-B-A-B pattern. That is, at a given moment the A tubes are inflated and the B tubes are deflated, and then they reverse. This automatically changes the pressures on a given point on the body, enhancing tissue perfusion by "milking" blood through capillaries as pressure is applied and released.
Low-air-loss mattresses consist of large bladders punctured by tiny pin-holes. Air diffuses up through these holes, and into the space between the air bladders or cylinders and the cover. Heat and moisture vapor from the patient diffuse down through the cover into this space, and is pushed away from the patient and out of the mattress/cover system. If this is done effectively, low-air-loss can reduce the negative effects of heat and moisture buildup on the skin.

Q. How to store the PressureGuard APM Mattress?

Always store the surface flat on a clean, level surface. Avoid storage of other equipment on top of the mattress. When removing the mattress from storage, always ensure the internal inflation system is aligned correctly prior to placing a patient on the surface.

Q. What kind of Bed Liners are recommended with Span America Air Mattress APM?

Seven-inch deep fitted sheets are recommended. Multiple layering of linens or underpads beneath the patient should be avoided for the prevention and treatment of pressure ulcers.
