AWT — Acoustic Wave Therapy — is a safe, effective, and non-invasive treatment for erectile dysfunction that uses pulse waves to increase penile blood flow and improve sexual performance. What is SwissWave Protocol? SwissWave Protocol is an AWT approach that uses a Swiss-made medical device cleared by the Food and Drug Administration FDA for use on the human body as a massage device for soft tissue repair and improved blood flow, among other uses. Use of this equipment according to our established best practice protocol for ED treatment, and perfectly calibrated equipment forms the SwissWave Protocol.
The incidence of symptomatic UEVTs ranges from 2. In burn patients hypercoagulability may increase this risk. There were 3 males and 2 females. Two were Caucasian, two Hispanic and one African American. All but one required multiple surgical procedures. They all had third degree burns, were relatively immobile, and were on prophylactic anti-coagulation.
All catheters were 5fr dual lumen. Four cases were located in the left arm and two in the right arm.
Thromboses were more often located in smaller veins with the cephalic vein being the most common. A search was performed utilizing Pub Med and multiple topic related journals. Within the burn population, higher TBSA burned, and presence of inhalation injury, were associated with higher risk.
However, both burn patients and non-burn patients were at higher risk based on increased time in surgery, and larger diameter catheter size.
The consistent information regarding the diameter of the catheter, size of the vein and mobility status, leads to the mechanism of PICC line associated VTs. Simulated and mathematical flow models have shown that catheters decrease venous flow rates and lead to stasis.
In addition, based on our cases and literature review, the efficacy of thromboprophylaxis in the setting of PICC lines is unclear. Perhaps doses will not be safely high enough to overcome the increased time that coagulation factors have to interact with each other due to localized decreased flow rates.
A closer look at modifiable factors of local stasis may prove to be surprisingly effective in the prevention of PICC line associated VTs. Our plan is to initiate a study using a compression sleeve which applies even compression, yet allows for full range of motion of the extremity. Evidence suggests that PICC lines result in localized decreased venous flow rates and stasis.Issue There has been growing media and community concern that air travel may increase the risk of deep vein thrombosis (DVT).
The Department has recently completed a research project to assess the scale of any such risk. Thrombosis Research was established in and is an international journal with a goal of rapid dissemination of new information on thrombosis, hemostasis, and vascular biology to advance science and clinical care.
The journal publishes peer-reviewed original research, along with reviews, editorials, and opinions and critics. Deep venous thrombosis Deep venous thrombosis is a blood clot that forms in a vein deep inside a part of the body.
It mainly affects the large veins in the lower leg and thigh. Causes When a clot breaks off and moves through the bloodstream, this is called an embolism. The Medical Services Advisory Committee (MSAC) is an independent non-statutory committee established by the Australian Government Minister for Health in Deep vein thrombosis is a cardiovascular disease in which a blood clot forms in a vein deep in the body.
It is most commonly found in the lower leg or thigh. This disease is extremely dangerous because if the clot breaks loose, the embolus (loose clot) can travel into the pulmonary circulation where it gets stuck in the lungs, blocking blood flow back /5(1). Veterinarni medicina , Vol.
