Before Prescribing Aero-Wrap™ Products

When administering the Aero-Wrap™ products, you must adhere to some precautions. First, determine that the Aero-Wrap™ product you are prescribing is suitable for your patient’s condition, including ruling out peripheral arterial disease (“PAD”).

As their physician, ensure that the patient has adequate arterial blood flow, has been educated as to the appropriate prescribed compression range, and has been instructed in the proper use of the device.

Determine the correct size of the Aero-Wrap™ Compression System and ensure that no abrasive material is in contact with their skin.

If your patient has pain when walking or resting in bed, develops numbness, or complains of cold feet they should discontinue use of the Aero-Wrap™ product and contact your office.

 

Compression to a leg which already has partially blocked blood supply could lead to potentially serious complications.

 

Patients with symptoms of peripheral arterial disease ("PAD") should be seen by a vascular specialist before use of these products. Patients should be carefully screened to rule out arterial disease. 

Caution should be used in a pressurized environment, such as an airplane, where the pressure within the Aero-Wrap™ is likely to change. If the compression increases, deflate all air and re-inflate to proper levels.

Contraindications:

  • Ankle Brachial Pressure Index (ABPI) of less than 0.6
  • Advanced PAD and Critical Limb Ischemia
