Mattresses, Bed, Water

Definition : Bed mattresses filled with water to provide a pressure relief surface to the patient. These mattresses are typically made of several interconnected sections of water bladders enclosed in a strong plastic casing (e.g., vinyl). Water mattresses are typically filled through a valve that adapts to standard hoses; they are used to reduce the pressure delivered from the surface to the patient's skin (for the prevention of pressure sores [decubitus ulcers]).
