Are bedsores pressure ulcers?

I want to know if bedsores are the same as pressure ulcers or is there a difference?

Re: Are bedsores pressure ulcers?

bedsores are pressure from sitting or lying on the bed to long with pressure...so yes.  Many people on Medicare with a medicare supplement or Medicare advantage plan have bed sores.
