A nit-picky question here:
So you have a pt with an open wound over his sacrum. He is someone who does not turn on his own, he has impaired circulation and impaired sense of touch/pain, and the wound looks just like a pressure sore (not any other kind of wound)
The wound blanches. So then it is not a pressure ulcer?
But can the injured tissue not become blanchable once pressure has been relieved for a sustained period? In order to heal, the area has to have a blood supply, thus we would expect that the area would eventually become blanchable, right?
Or has it been found that a pressure sore will never become blanchable?
Google has failed me, so I thought I would ask you good folks
