Additionally, under-inflation reduces the overall handling capabilities of the truck, meaning it is harder to navigate turns and curves and more difficult to maneuver it in heavy traffic situations. While it's up to the driver to check the pressure and adjust it accordingly, some drivers don't always follow protocol. When a TPMS is used, the driver receives an alert when tire pressure is low, thus, allowing them to address the problem in a

After the car is up then remove the lug nuts
In Behrendt et al (2014) in summary of the article reviewing continuous bedside pressure mapping (CBPM) devices were studied on the effects of pressure ulcer prevention. It focused on reducing the number of hospital-associated pressure ulcers. Prevention of pressure ulcer is a very important in nursing, we can provide a better quality life for patients in the hospital. Patient with the CBPM devices had an occurrence of developing a pressure ulcer in 2 of 213 patients and in patients with no CBPM the occurrence of developing a pressure ulcer were 10 of 209 patient (Behrendt et al., 2014). We can see a good change in occurrence between in the two groups, the percentage of a pressure ulcer occurring on a patient with a CBPM device was at 0.9%.
