Patient positioning is an essential part of a preventive strategy for neurocritical care patients.

The aim of the study will be to determine whether the positioning of the bed is the same or better compared to the positioning of the patient's bed in the presence of pressure ulcer.


In the monocentric, intervention, prospective, randomized study, we will investigate incidence of pressure ulcer in 300 adult consecutive patients admitted to our Neurointensive Care Unit (NICU). All patients will suffer from acute primary brain disease and will be unconscious with artificial pulmonary ventilation.
