Objectives: To study the predictive factors of pressure ulcers in Intensive care and Stroke Unit.
Methods: Retrospective study in Intensive care and Stroke Unit at Ramadhibodi Chakri Naruebodindra Hospital from 1 January 2021 to 31 December 2022 by selecting 90 random samples, analyzing frequency, percentage, mean, standard deviation, and determining the predicting factors of pressure ulcer in critically ill patients and stroke using binary logistic regression, presented with an Adjusted OR (aOR) value at a 95% confidence interval.
Results: There were 22 patients (24.40%) with pressure sores, 46 (51.10%) of whom were male, with an average age of 67.59 years (SD=16.00) and a length of stay in the critical care unit of 16 days. The average was 11.09 days (standard deviation = 9.70). Receiving Vasopressor and Inotropic medications was associated with an increased risk of pressure ulcers (aOR, 3.418; 95% CI, 1.036-11.274). Other factors were discovered to be unrelated. Endotracheal intubation, getting sedative medicines, patients with brain disorders who do not have Parkinson's, and length of stay in the critical care unit more than 7 days are all statistically significant differences.
Conclusion: Vasopressor and inotropic medications were administered to patient groups. The risk of acquiring pressure sores is 3.418 times more than that of individuals who do not have pressure sores, so patients in this category should be closely monitored and look for strategies to reduce risks to reduce pressure ulcers.
