The use of medical devices are associated with developing pressure ulcer in various patients population. The purpose of this study was to quantify the types of medical device related pressure ulcer (MDRPU) and its risk factors by results from secondary analysis of data which was based on pressure ulcer reporting system in 2 acute care hospitals in Korea. The overall rate of hospital acquired pressure ulcer was 0.11%, the proportion of patients with hospital-acquired ulcers related to medical device was 1.97% (37/1,874). Most of MDRPU stage was stage I (27%), and suspected deep tissue injury (27%,). and stage II (46.9%). The most common location for MDRPU was thigh (21.6%), wrist (13.5%), head (10.8%), and heel (10.8%). The most common Medical devices causing pressure ulcer were treatment aid tools (26%), antiembolic stocking (23%), angiocatheter (20%), and oxygenations (14%), monitoring devices (11%). intensive care unit patients had a higher rate of MDRPU compared with other departments. But MDRPU has been underreported, especially pediatric population. It is necessary to perform more frequent skin assessment for patients using medical devices, and collaborate with other health care provider to prevent MDRPU in various clinical setting involving pediatric population.
