The system should be used continuously for no less than 72 hours post-operatively or until the patient becomes fully ambulatory
If the calf or thigh garment can not be applied to the operative limb during surgery, it may be applied to the limb once the patient reaches the recovery unit
In the non-surgical patient the system should be initiated immediately the risk of DVT formation is identified
Garments should be removed regularly to inspect the skin
Where appropriate patients should be instructed in the proper use of the system, the purpose of therapy and that any problems should be reported to the nursing staff
The Flowtron System should not be used in the following conditions:Severe arteriosclerosis or other ischaemic vascular diseases Known or suspected acute DVT or phlebitis
Severe congestive cardiac failure or any condition where an increase in fluid to the heart may be detrimental
Any local condition in which the garments would interfere, including gangrene, recent skin graft, dermatitis or untreated, infected leg wounds
If you are unsure of any contraindications refer to a physician before using the device
Garments should be removed immediately if the patient experiences tingling, numbness or pain
When used for DVT prophylaxis continuous use is recommended and any interruption of therapy for a substantial length
If time should be at the discretion of the physician
Patients should be instructed not to stand or walk with the foot garments on
