Reducing nasal pressure ulcers with an alternative taping device.

Abstract

Mucosal tissues are vulnerable to nasal pressure ulcers (NPUs) secondary to nasogastric tubes, and can cause hospital-associated complications and increased length of stay. The findings of this study suggest a commercially available device significantly reduces NPUs and is more adherent compared to conventional adhesive taping.
