A multi-layer compression bandage system providing reduced compression from the Cardinal Health Four-Layer Compression Bandage System. It is developed for the treatment of mixed etiology leg ulcers where some degree of arterial impairment prevents the use of full compression. For Ankle Brachial Index (ABI) between 0.6 and 0.8.
- Maintains effective compression after application
- Provides higher pressure at the ankle, decreasing pressure at the calf to help improve upward blood flow
- May be left in place for up to one week
- Not made with natural rubber latex
Do not use on patients with an Ankle Brachial Index (ABI) of less than 0.6 or on diabetic patients with advanced small vessel disease. Diabetics may have a false ABI due to calcification of peripheral arterial vessels. Always assess diabetics with additional clinical measures.
