he Invacare APM Replacement Pump is an economical therapy option for patients at risk of or with pressure ulcers. By working in conjunction with the APM Replacement Mattress, the pressure relief mattress accessory increases patient safety. It has two different modes, a Static Mode and a Max Firm Mode, and audio and visual alarms warn when there is a power outage or time of low pressure. The Invacare APM Replacement Pump stays inflated, even during power outages, and it runs in 10 minute cycles that are constantly monitored for pressure levels.
- 10 minute cycle time provides patient comfort and relief
- Features a 10 LBP compressor with a solenoid valve system
- Alternatively inflates and deflates mattress cells to reduce interface pressure
- Audio and visual alarms warn the patient and caregiver during power outages and low pressure
- Constant pressure monitoring keeps the air pressure at appropriate levels to prevent capillary occlusion
The APM Replacement Pump works in conjunction with the APM Mattress to aid in the prevention and treatment of Stage I to Stage IV pressure ulcers. The economical system does not compromise quality with price and is reliable with low maintenance. The alternating pressure system alternatively inflates and deflates cells to reduce interface pressure, aiding in the prevention and treatment of ulcers.
The APM Replacement Pump features a 10 LPM compressor and a solenoid valve system with effective therapy cycles, and it's easy to set up. The 10 minute cycle time provides patient comfort and relief. Constant pressure monitoring keeps the air pressure at appropriate levels to prevent capillary occlusion (generally below 32mm/Hg). A static mode uses an alternating function that ceases and redistributes pressure across all cells within the mattress. The max firm mode assists during patient ingress/egress and initial set up. Audio and visual alarms warn the patient and caregiver during power outage or low pressure. The mattress remains inflated duing power outage as long as the air hose is connected to the compressor. The APM Replacement Pump includes a 1 year warranty.
