Airstream A

The NoDec Airstream A alternating pressure mattress overlay is ideal for the prevention and management of pressure injuries.  This highly efficient, 2 cell-cycle alternating overlay provides excellent relief of deep pressure, with significant interface pressure differential between inflated and deflated air cells, especially if placed on top of a high specification FoamTech pressure-relieving mattress.

A lightweight, portable system the Airstream A is easy to use with auto adjustment of pressure to suit individual patient requirements and provides key safety features such as easily accessible CPR for rapid deflation in emergencies and permanently inflated side formers which protect vulnerable patients from falls.

A single layer of 18 individual air-cells are held in a fixed position beneath the body by firm attachment to longitudinally placed, permanently inflated, side formers. The side formers prevent bed rail entrapment and increase patient safety during bed exits and transfers to chair or trolley. This firm edge makes Airstream A the alternating pressure overlay mattress of choice when nursing elderly patients with a high fall risk.

Key Features:

  • Advanced solenoid technology controls the rapid changes in airflow in the Airstream A, providing optimum comfort and care for patients at Medium to High Risk of pressure injury and for healing Grade 1 and 2 pressure injuries.
  • Advanced engineering and a powerful compressor result in a dynamic support surface that is suitable for patients weighing from 30 to 180 kg.
  • Step Down Comfort Mode for patients weighing less than 45kg
  • Cojoined air cells maintain fixed position beneath the patient
  • Profiling and knee-break facility allows patient to comfortably recline or sit up without compromising pressure care
  • Supportive but dynamic overlay enhances quality of sleep
  • Wide diameter tubing throughout the overlay enables rapid air cell deflation 6 times per hour

Available Sizes:

  • Single - 1850 x 880 x 100 mm (integrated cell) / SWL 180kg
Airstream Overlay (ASA)

Pressure relief10 minute alternating 2-cell cycle provides effective pressure variation through rapid air cell deflation.
Solenoid technologyEnhances pressure relief by providing a more efficient flow of air in and out of the cells therefore a superior reactive hyperaemic response in the deep tissues about the bony prominences
Ultrasonically welded cell structureAll cells in each layer are ultrasonically welded together to eliminate the risk of the patient ‘bottoming out’ whilst also preventing air cell encroachment.
Easily accessible CPRIntuitive, always visible and accessible CPR release valve located on umbilical provides rapid deflation in approx. 10 seconds.
Integrated side formersPermanently inflated side formers provide a firm mattress edge to ensure patient stabilisation and fall prevention (NSQHS standard 10) during exits or transferring to a trolley/chair.
Comfort controlAdjustable comfort control to Soft and Firm within both Static and Dynamic modes provide nursing staff with the ability to adjust air cell inflation pressures to suit individual patient comfort or clinical requirements.
Timed Static modeProvides a firm and stable surface for essential nursing procedures such as physiotherapy and wound cleaning. A safety automatic return to Dynamic mode after 30 minutes ensures that patients are not put at risk of pressure damage.
30 hour Transport modeEasy to operate one way valve lets mattress remain inflated for at least 30 hours and also facilitates patient/bed movement without unnecessary risk to patient.
Audible and visual alarmsA sophisticated set of audible and visual alarm functions provide enhanced patient safety and ensures peace of mind for nursing staff.
Securing strapsAdjustable heavy duty nylon straps allow the NoDec A Airstream to be safely secured to a base mattress.
Dartex cover with welded seams Soft, easy to clean, waterproof Dartex cover provides a complete barrier against viruses and blood, minimising infection control risks.
