Abstract: AIMS: to evaluate the accuracy of the Braden and Waterlow risk assessment scales in critically ill inpatients. METHOD: this prospective cohort study, with 55 patients in intensive care units, was performed through evaluation of sociodemographic and clinical variables, through the application of the scales (Braden and Waterlow) upon admission and every 48 hours; and through the evaluation and classification of the ulcers into categories. RESULTS: the pressure ulcer incidence was 30.9%, with the Braden and Water… Show more

“…BRDs is the most widely used scale in practice and is said by some authors to be the most reliable and valid instrument that can be used in a wide age range of patients (8)(9)(10)(11)(12)(13)(14) Table 2. Age, sex, BMI, duration of hospitalization, diagnoses, Apache II scores, state of consciousness, albumin, and expected-actual mortality rates of patients six sub-parameters: the perception of stimulus: wetness, activity, movement, nutrition, and friction and irritation (Table 1) (9).…”

“…The scale that is still most commonly used in Turkey and in many other countries and that is said to be the most reliable and valid scale for patient groups of a wide age range is the "Braden Risk Assessment Scale (BRDs)" (8)(9)(10)(11)(12)(13)(14).…”

“…These aspects are related to the mobility of the patient, understood as the capacity to change, keep, or sustain certain body positions; the ability to remove any pressure from regions of the skin/body to promote blood circulation; and the sensorial perception that implies in the level of consciousness, reflected in the capacity of the individual to perceive painful or uncomfortable stimuli and react, changing the position or asking for support to do it (18) . In agreement with these findings, Borghardt et al (19) classifies ICU patients as critical, as besides the clinical gravity and all the risks that intensive care involve, these patients are permanently in resting dorsal position for long periods of time, which favors the conditions to develop and worsen the injuries due to the excess of pressure over the occipital, sacral, and calcaneus regions. The risk factors of the non-planned extubation of the endotracheal cannula: motor agitation; mental confusion; sensitive deficit; neurological disorder; use of sedatives r post-sedative period; incorrect placement of the endotracheal cannula; inadequate pressure of the cuff; incorrect use of the support for venting extensions and circuits; and mobilization of the patient.…”

“…Contudo, é de extrema importância para o prognóstico, já que a identificação dos pacientes em risco permite a implementação de medidas preventivas precocemente, o que pode reduzir pela metade a incidência das UPs (15)(16) . Ademais, é de suma importância a implementação da Sistematização da Assistência de Enfermagem (SAE) que pode levantar questionamentos para o risco e elaboração de planos de cuidados individualizados para pacientes com fatores…”
