Step By Step Instructions
The Cryo/Cuff provides two functions:
- Compression - to keep swelling down.
- Ice Therapy - to keep swelling down and to help minimize pain.
The Cryo/Cuff has three main parts:
- The Cuff - a pouch like device that is filled with ice cold water.
- The Tube - goes from Cuff to Canister, and is detachable. It allows you to exchange the water in the Cuff.
- The Canister - holds ice and water.
At the time of surgery the Cryo/Cuff will be placed on the knee after the dressings are applied. It will be filled at this time. The canister should also be filled with ice and water prior to surgery.
THE WATER IN THE CUFF SHOULD BE "EXCHANGED" OR "RECHARGED" EVERY ONE OR TWO HOURS. THE CUFF SHOULD BE FULL BUT ALSO COMFORTABLE.
To exchange the water:
- Connect tube to Cuff.
- Open air valve on top of Canister.
- Lower Canister below knee level (set on floor is best).
- Completely drain warm water out of Cuff. Allow it to go into the Canister (to speed recharging process swish water around in Canister). Allow enough time for water to get cold.
- Refill Cuff by raising Canister 15-18 inches above the knee, allowing water in the Canister to drain into the Cuff.
- Patient should disconnect tube when the Cuff is filled to a comfortable level.
* THE ICE IN THE CANISTER WILL NEED TO BE REFILLED EVERY 6 HOURS OR SO (FOR BEST RESULTS, LEAVE CUFF FILLED AND DISCONNECT TUBE. EMPTY THE WATER FROM THE CANISTER AND FILL IT TO THE TOP WITH ICE).
