    - If the bony prominence is felt, remove the patient and add air as needed.
    - If the bony prominence isnt felt no action is required.

    - These cushions are pre-filled with air but can be adjusted by the user

    - Exposure to moisture, powder, friction, shearing, chemicals, secretions, excretions, and other irritants also influences pressure ulcer development.
    - Friction and shearing occurs readily when residents are pulled up in a bed or chair and could cause minor skin tears that could rapidly turn into pressure ulcers.
    - Pressure ulcers can also develop if clothing is constricting, pressing or rubbing on the skin
