ROCA-BIOSCA, Alba et al. Identification and classification of the injuries related to the dependence: from theory to clinical practice. Gerokomos [online]. 2015, vol.26, n.2, pp.58-62. ISSN 1134-928X.

Aim: Descriptive to clasified and categorize the dependence related lesions on the theory García-Fernández y cols. Metodology: Descriptive and longitudinal study in intensive care unit in which all patients admitted. We included patients without previous pressure ulcers. Each patient was assessed daily to develop dependence related lesions or output study. Results: 27.9% of patients (n = 136) developed dependence related lesions. No statistically significant differences between patients who developed dependence related lesions and those who did not save for EMINA first day (p = 0.035). Only 46.4% of dependence related lesions were classified as pressure ulcers. 36.8% were related to medical devices. Conclusions: Our results support the paradigm shift proposed by these authors allowing differentiation between pressure ulcers and other lesions.
