• Treatment protocols are based on specific patient medical conditions and history. Your physician should have experience in continuous-flow cold therapy application.
• NEVER apply pad directly to unprotected skin. There MUST be a protective barrier that provides complete coverage of bare skin.

If a sterile dressing has been applied, but does not completely cover treatment site, use an additional barrier of protection.
Pad is too cold to be applied directly to the skin.
• Fully inspect the skin under the pad every 30 minutes. Do not use if dressing, wrapping, bracing, or casting material prevents frequent skin checks. Stop using and contact your practitioner immediately if you experience any adverse reactions such as, but not limited to; increased pain, burning, increased swelling, itching, blisters, frostbite, increased redness, discoloration, welts, changes in skin appearance, or any other reaction.
