The following checks should be undertaken in the event of a low-pressure alert.
- Is their power to the pump? If the pump is not working then insufficient air will is being delivered to the mattress.
- Is air escaping from the CPR valve? If the CPR is left partially opened air will escape thus lowering the pressures contained within the mattress.
- Is air escaping from the tube set to pump connector? If air is leaking from the tubeset connector then insufficient air will be delivered to the mattress.
- Is air escaping from an air cell or an internal tubeset. A minute puncture or leak within the mattress will mean insufficient air being produced / contained within the mattress.
