Using TENA Bed Plus and TENA Bed Super pads to prevent moisture lesions in an ICUPatients in intensive care units (ICU) are often exposed to prolonged periods of moisture from incontinence and perspiration, which can lead to the development of moisture lesions. An audit of the author’s ICU found 80 patients with moisture lesions over a 12-month period. This evaluation aimed to provide evidence in the form of 20 case studies to demonstrate the benefits of using TENA Bed Plus or Super pads for the prevention and management of moisture lesions in an ICU when compared to the unit’s normal practice of not using pads.
