The Head Ring is placed under the patient’s head when on the operating table to prevent pressure sores.
About the Head Ring
This product comes with a soft vinyl heat sealed cover for infection control.
The three sizes fit from paediatric to adult patients. Either the medium or large size is usually used on adult patients, depending on the shape of the patient’s skull.
Sometimes they are used to protect a patient’s ears. Place a large or medium Ring under the patient’s ear to hold the head away from the pillow. It can be placed inside an empty pillowcase, so the patient’s head is not directly touching the vinyl cover. Ensure that the pillowcase is loosely fitted inside the middle hole to prevent the pillowcase material from pressing against the ear.
