The gel pad is made of high molecular medical gel, which can spread the weight of the patient evenly. By increasing the touch area between the body part and the support surface, the pressure between the two can be reduced, and it is elastic and should not be completely compressed. These characteristics are necessary to reduce the pressure on the patient's body during the operation. The gel pad has the effect of the second layer of human skin, and can play a "protective layer" effect on the superficial part of the nerve, providing protection for patients undergoing surgery, and can effectively prevent the occurrence of pressure ulcer and nerve injury.
The use of gel pad can place the surgical patients in a suitable surgical position, fully expose the surgical field of vision, and the patients will not move during the operation. It is convenient for the surgeon to perform the operation, shorten the operation time, and then reduce the risk of the operation and reduce the complications of the operation.
Pressure ulcers not only bring sufferings to patients, but also affect their health. Anesthesia is a treatment using drugs called anesthetics. These drugs keep you from feeling pain during medical procedures. Anesthesiologists are medical doctors who administer anesthesia and manage pain. Some anesthesia numbs a small area of the body. General anesthesia makes you unconscious (asleep) during invasive surgical procedures. After anesthesia surgery, patients often find that some joints and muscles suffer from abnormal pain after waking up, and it often takes several weeks and months to recover. This is because of anesthesia, the human body loses consciousness and is supported in a fixed position, and some joints and nerves suffer from long-term compression. The body seriously is under pressure for a long time, and the blood circulation is impaired. It cannot adapt to the supply of nutrients for the skin and subcutaneous arrangements, resulting in ulceration and necrosis and pressure ulcers.
