摘要

This study was to verify whether the severity of pressure injuries (PIs) in intensive care unit (ICU) patients plays a mediating role in the relationship between severity of their illnesses and risk of death. I examined adult patients admitted to the ICUs between 1 January 2014 and 31 August 2021. The average follow-up period was 11.34 months. A total of 390 ICU patients suffered from PIs. The influences of the APACHE II score of the ICU patients on the mediating variable ‘unstageable & DTPIs vs. Stage 1&2 PIs’ and on risk of death were significant. After controlling the influence of APACHE II score on risk of death, the influences of mediating variables ‘Stage 3&4 PIs vs. Stage 1&2 PIs’ and ‘unstageable & DTPIs vs. Stage 1&2 PIs’ on risk of death were also significant. The regression coefficient of APACHE II score of the ICU patients declined after the severity of PIs was included. The Sobel test on the indirect effects also reached the level of significance. The severity of illnesses is a factor that is beyond my control, severe PIs should still be prevented to lower the risk of death.
