Publicatieversie 1.0 (01-07-2015).


A decubitus wound is localized damage to the skin and/or underlying tissue, often over a bony prominence, as a result of pressure or pressure combined with friction.
A decubitus wound involves a major disease burden and reduces the quality of life for a patient. Adequate risk evaluation, prevention and treatment of decubitus wounds can lead to a fewer incidences and prevalence of decubitus wounds.


Information on the decubitus ulcer is of importance in starting or continuing the best possible wound treatment, curatively and preventatively, and to be able to properly monitor the wound healing process.

Evidence Base

To describe the wound, there are 4 categories, based on the international NPUAP/EPUAP decubitus classification system:

  • Category 1: non-removable redness of intact skin;
  • Category 2: loss of a partial layer of skin or blister;
  • Category 3: loss of an entire layer of skin (visible fat);
  • Category 4: loss of an entire layer of tissue (visible muscle/bone).
