As a part of an IAD skin care regimen, cleanse the skin gently, preferably without water.
Always screen the skin for redness, inflammation, rash, pain, and itching in order to assess the severity and development of skin problems, and to ensure the patient has not developed pressure ulcers.
Gentle cleansing is especially vital as a part of a regimen to prevent IAD (incontinence Associated Incontinence):
After applying gentle cleaning, an essential part of quality continence care is to apply moisture and barrier products and to use high-quality, breathableincontinence products and bed protection sheets.
Abena washing lotion is mild and with effective cleansing properties for personal hygiene.
It is also a good alternative to traditional washing with water and soap. Using washing lotion avoids soap residue on the skin, which can be a strong irritant. You also avoid wet bed linen.
Washing lotion is the ideal solution for bedridden, immobile and/or incontinence patients. It removes perspiration salts and unpleasant body odors efficiently and leaves a protective layer on the skin.
Washing lotion is applied carefully after removing visible urine and/or feces. Excess lotion is wiped awar with a soft wash glove or a similar product.
Wet wash gloves from Abena have a pleasant cleansing and moisturizing effect. They are a good alternative to traditional washing with water and soap.
The gloves remove perspiration and bad odors and are hygienic in use.
A full body wash also makes it possible to address potential skin conditions in early phases, preventing skin conditions such as IAD from becoming a concern.
Screen the skin at each incontinence product change for redness, inflammation, rash, pain, or itching to assess the severity and development of IAD (and to ensure the patient has not developed pressure ulcers).
After thorough and gentle cleansing, the next step is to apply moisture and barrier application. Read more about moisture and barrier application as a part of a the IAD skin care regimen
