Lymphedema Pumps

Lymphedema is a health condition that occurs due to impeded flow of lymphatic system. As a result fluid retention and swollen tissues are eminent in people with lymphedema. In a limb that is swollen fatigue is a common problem. Fluid can accumulate in any part of the body including the head or the neck. Lymphedema is a condition that is inherited. Also a person may suffer from the condition after injuries to lymph vessels post-surgery or injury. Radiation treatments can also lead to lymphedema.

Lymphedema pumps are used to provide compression to the affected area where fluid has been retained. These pumps force air in compression sleeves (containing multiple chambers and overlapping cells). When the air is forced in the sleeve it applies compression to the swollen limb. This compression keeps the fluid from accumulating thereby regulating flow. These pumps also help in making the fibrotic tissues soft resulting in a higher efficiency drainage. Lymphedema pumps are used for the following:

  • Post-traumatic edema
  • Primary or secondary lymphedema
  • Postoperative edema
  • Chronic edema
  • Chronic swelling from venous insufficiency
  • Lymphedema pumps should not be used in following situations:
  • Local superficial infection
  • Edema secondary to congestive heart failure
  • Gangrene
  • Compartment Syndrome
  • Deep vein thrombosis
  • Ischemic vascular disease
  • Acute pulmonary edema
  • Arteriosclerosis
  • Peripheral vascular disease
  • Dermatitis
  • Displaced fractures
