How to use IontoPatch 80 And IontoPatch STAT?
1 . Prepare the Site to ensure the best adhesion.
- Clip body hair - do not shave.
- Clean the area with soap and water - dry thoroughly.
- Do not use alcohol or an alcohol wipe to clean the skin prior to patch application. If cleaning is necessary, use soap and water.
2. Fill Electrodes with approximately 1.0 ml of medication and/or saline.
- Do not overfill. The saline vial enclosed contains more than 1.0 ml. Do not use the entire contents of the vial. Start at the center of the pad and fill toward the outer edge leaving 3 mm unfilled around the perimeter of the pad to keep liquid from contacting the adhesive.
- Add positively charged medication (cationic) to the positive electrode.
- Add negatively charged medication (anionic) to the negative electrode.
- If a single medication is used, fill the alternate electrode with saline (0.9%NaCl).
3. Position the Joint midway through the full range of motion to ensure adhesion.
4. Place the Patch in the desired location with the medication electrode over the treatment site.
5. Secure the Patch by running the finger around the perimeter and outer ridge only
- Do not press the center of electrodes during initial application. Pressing the center dispenses liquid and compromises adhesion.
- Wrap over patch when adherence is in question: difficult area to adhere to, oily or dry skin, being worn during significant activity or exercise.
6. Patch Wear Time:
- Delivery time is dependent upon individual patient skin resistance.
- For the average patient, dosage delivery will be complete in approximately 8 hours.
- The rate of drug delivery will be substantially reduced after 12 hours. Remove the patch after 12 hours.
How to Remove Iontophoresis Patch?
- To minimize skin irritation, remove the patch gently while thoroughly soaking with soap and water. Do not pull the patch off while dry.
- Use moisturizing lotion following patch removal.
- Allow a minimum of 24 hours between patch removal and the next patch application.
- Where possible, vary the location of adhesive contact to the skin for alternate patch applications.
