Transcript of Multi-Layer Stocking Ulcer Compression System

  • Multi-Layer Stocking Ulcer Compression SystemFor accurate and controlled graduated compression for the treatment of leg ulcers

  • Multi-Layer Stocking Ulcer Compression SystemThe Multi-Layer consists of two stockings specifically manufactured to work together, producing accurate compression levels Understocking

    Ankle indication knit for proper placement Blue heel for positioning Smooth surface to facilitate application of Overstocking Fits easily over the primary dressing Helps protect the wound and skin Facilitates the application of the Overstocking Allows for appropriate compression at night for continued compression therapy (16-18 mmHg) Ballooned toe for comfort and no compression over toes

  • Multi-Layer Stocking Ulcer Compression SystemOverstockingSpecifically designed to work together with the Understocking to produce the needed accurate compression levels for treatment Produces combined compression of 30-40 mmHg or 40-50 mmHgAvailable is sheer beige or black sock styles

    Stockings should be machined washed and dried in dryer

    Washing helps maintain fabric compression levels

    Certified for compression for 90 washings

    Latex Free

  • Multi-Layer Stocking Ulcer Compression SystemBroad Fitting Range

    Fits ankle circumferences from 7 (15.5 cm) to 14 (35.5 cm)

    Fits Calf Circumferences from 10 (25.5 cm) to 26 (66 cm)

    Available in Short and Regular Lengths

  • Multi-Layer Stocking Ulcer Compression SystemManufactured in a state of the art facility in North Carolina USACertified for accurate compression by the Hosiery Technology CenterCompression Standard Specifications: BSI: 6612 FDA GMP (FDA Reg. No. 56-1044755)

  • Multi-Layer Stocking Ulcer Compression SystemAs soon as the patients leg falls within the fitting chart, the Multi-Layer System can be applied

    Measure ankle, calf and length

    Select appropriate compression level (30-40 mmHg - 40-50 mmHg)

    Select style and sizeStabilize the patients edema using bandage wrap system

    Slide foot portion of stocking over patients foot. Work fabric up the legPull fabric away from toes

  • Multi-Layer Stocking Ulcer Compression SystemBoth the Understocking and the Overstocking should be worn when the patient is ambulatory. At night, the Overstocking can be removed leaving the Understocking on to provide appropriate compression (similar to an anti-embolism stocking 16-18 mmHg ), to improve blood flow, protect the skin and to help keep the dressing in place.The compression levels in the Understocking have been shown to best improve blood flow for the recumbent patient.

  • Multi-Layer Stocking Ulcer Compression SystemMulti-Layer System is reimbursed as a secondary dressing when used on an open venous insufficiency ulcer wound that requires debridement. Reimbursement is available for both 30-40 mmHg and 40-50 mmHg ReimbursementA6531 Gradient compression stocking, below knee, 30-40 mmHg Reimbursement- Carton $90.76

    After third dressing change. (18 days)More effective than a standard short-stretch compression bandage in healing venous leg ulcers and in reducing associated pain Leg compression with stockings was more effective than bandages, with reduced pain and a higher rate and speed of ulcer healing The patients were treated with the 35-40 mmHg Carolon Multi-Layer Compression System and given permission to change the dressings and participate in their wound care. All patients were treated successfully and remained free of recurrence and infection during the year study.

  • Multi-Layer Stocking Ulcer Compression SystemLiterature Review

    A NEW METHOD OF COMPRESSION THERAPY IN TREATMENT OF VENOUS LEG ULCERATIONHampton, Sylvie; Collins, Fiona: Tissue Viability Consultancy Services LimitedFive patients were selected with chronic venous leg ulcers that had undergone previous treatment.The patients were treated with the 35-40 mmHg Carolon Multi-Layer Compression System and given permission to change the dressings and participate in their wound care.All patients were treated successfully and remained free of recurrence and infection during the year study. A PILOT STUDY TO EVALUATE THE USE OF GRADUATED COMPRESSION STOCKING IN THE TREATMENT OF PATIENTS WITH VENOUS LEG ULCERATION Bale, Sue; University of Wales College of Medicine20 patients were selected: 10 long-standing and 10 new venous leg ulcers. The patients used their standard treatment for 4 weeks and then changed to the Multi-Layer Compression System.45% of the patients were healed with a median time of 9 weeks.The patients that did not heal within a 12 week period had a median percentage reduction in wound size of 81.6%.Patients rated comfort positively.

    COMPRESSION FOR VENOUS LEG ULCERS VIA BANDAGES OR STOCKINGS: RESULTS OF A PILOT STUDY COMPARING THE PERFORMANCE OF A TWO-LAYERED COMPRESSION STOCKING SYSTEM WITH THAT OF SHORT STRETCH BANDAGER Polignano, Universita degli Studi de Firenze. P Bonadeo, Insitute of Vascular Surgery, Milan University, G Guarnera, Istituyo Dermopatico dellImmacolata56 patients were selected with 28 treated with short stretch bandages and 28 treated with the two layer stocking system. Treatment lasted for 12 weeks.14 % of the ulcers treated with the short stretch bandages healed in the 12 week period verses 56% of the patients treated with the stocking system.The stocking system was found to be more effective than short stretch bandages in healing venous leg ulcers.

    EVALUATION OF SUREPRESS COMFORT: A NEW COMPRESSION SYSTEM FOR THE MANAGEMENT OF VENOUS LEG ULCERSR. Polignsno, G. Guarnera, P. Oonadeo Journal of Wound Care Volume 13, Number 9, October 2004.Conclusion:more effective than a standard short-stretch compression bandage in healing venous leg ulcers and in reducing associated pain. It is well accepted by patients due to its ease of use and comfort, and its safety profile is comparable to that of a standard compression system.
