Today, I will like to write on the importance of adjustable beds in the hospital. Each time we visit the hospital, we see various forms of beds. To a lay man, those beds might not have any special meaning, but indeed it does have. Most of them are adjustable while some of them are not. The bed given to a patient in the hasta yatağı depends to a large extend on the type of illness disturbing the patient. Before I go further, I will like to start the next paragraph with a brief explanation. This will help us to have a better perception of the topic of discussion.
When we say adjustable, we mean beds that can easily be changed or altered into various slapping or lying positions. The height and slope of such beds can easily be changed to various level and slopes. Adjustable beds could be manual or electric. The electric adjustable beds make use of the electricity while the manual adjustable beds make use of mechanical wind-ups. In the type that uses electricity, all you just need to do is to press a button to alter the bed. In the mechanical type, all you need to do is to wind-up or wind-down the bed to the required position. We also have those that makes use of both electrical and mechanical adjustment. So in case when there is power failure, the mechanical adjustment mode can be used.
Due to the flexible nature of this kind of bed, patients especially those in pain can alter it to suit them in positions that will greatly reduce pain.
This type of bed is also very beneficial to patients with congestive cardiac failure. These patients usually presents with difficulty in breathing while lying down, thus the adjustable bed is used to position patients with heart failure in to the sitting position in hospital.
