New Tools for Reduction Phase Treatments and the Importance of Nighttime Garments

Location: Beach Room

Tuesday, May 3, 2022 ~ 10:30AM - 11:30AM

Nighttime treatments for lymphedema are just as important as daytime treatment, but can often be looked over or become lax over time. In this session, we will discuss new concepts as well as established protocols in nighttime lymphedema treatment. We will review new techniques in the reduction phase in lymphedema treatment and discuss the importance of treatment for lymphedema patients at night.

Learning Objectives:
- Discuss the philosophy of medium-stretch bandages in the reduction phase, opposed to short-stretch only techniques.
- Understand the importance of nighttime treatments for lymphedema patients.
- Explain the reasons to use foam in the lymphedema treatment protocols.
