This literature review summarizes research on nutrition and pressure ulcers from 1943 to 1989. The focus is on dietary intake of protein and calories, body weight, serum total protein, albumin, hemoglobin, total lymphocyte count, iron, zinc, and vitamin C. The literature clearly demonstrates that patients with pressure ulcers are malnourished.
