It is better to flush than to break under pressure.
In this issue Fromy et al. describe alterations in pressure-induced vasodilation in the populations most prone to development of pressure ulcers of the skin. Advancing our understanding regarding the basic pathophysiological mechanisms mediating the development of pressure ulcers will allow for better delineation of populations at risk. This study provides novel insights into this important and poorly understood entity, using tools that are potentially deployable into clinical practice.
