- -increase lactic acid and decreases ATP
Respiratory: decrease strength of muscles in chest expansion-effects ventilation, decreased ability to cough and red secretions
Cardio: increase workload of heart
Urinary: kidney stones, stasis means UTI
Integumentary: pressure ulcers
Psych: isolation and mood changes
Metabolic: decrease BMR, fluid/electrolyte imbalance
Nutrition: decreased calorie and protein, GI, nitro balance

- impaired sensation
Extrinsic: pressure, friction (damage outer layer), shearing (epidermal layer slides over dermis case damage to vascular bed), moisture
Pressure Ulcer Staging
- STAGE I. Nonblanchable erythema of intact skin: heralding of lesion of skin ulceration. The reactive hyperemia lasts 30 minutes beyond removal of pressure.
- STAGE II. Epidermis is broken, superficial lesion, non-measurable depth. Partial-thickness skin loss involving epidermis and/or dermis. The ulcer is superficial and presents clinically as an abrasion, blister, or shallow crater.
- STAGE III. Full thickness skin loss involving damage or necrosis down through dermis and may include subcutaneous tissue that may extend down to, but not through, underlying fascia.
- STAGE IV. Full thickness skin loss with extensive destruction extending into supportive structure such as muscle, tendon, bone and have various sinus tracts.
Note: the lost muscle, fat and dermis can’t be replaced, but only granulated - fills defect. So chart “healing stage 4 ulcer occurring”.

Types of Injuries
Partial thickness injury: limited to epidermis and superficial dermis with no damage to dermal layer. Healing occurs by regeneration of epithelial tissue. Examples: Scrapes, burns (formerly termed 1st degree), very early stages of pressure and of venous and arterial ulcers.
Full thickness injury: Involving loss of dermis and extends to deeper tissue layers, disrupts dermal blood vessels. Healing involves synthesis of several types of tissue and scar formation. Examples: Stage 2-4 pressure ulcers, stasis ulcers
