Set-up and Application

Slide 5

Treatment Duration Nonthermal, Mild, and Moderate Heating Duration – 20 to 30 minutes Repeated as required Two weeks Vigorous Heating Duration – 15 minutes Applied each other day

Slide 6

Precautions Remove contact focal points while applying SWD around the head, face, or eyes. The skin presented to the treatment ought to be secured by no less than 0.5 inch of toweling Do not permit sweat to gather in the treatment field. Thick fat tissue in the treatment range can bring about overheating the skin. It is hard to warm just confined territories. Water pathways inside the tissues disperse warm framed in the treated region. Never permit the skin to come into direct contact with the warming unit or links. In the event that the link technique is utilized, don\'t permit them to touch each other. On the off chance that cathode cushions are utilized, space them in any event the separation of their measurement separated. A profound, hurting sensation might be a side effect of overheating the tissues. Overheating of the patient\'s tissues may bring about tissue harm with no prompt signs. The SWD vitality disseminates 2 to 3 feet from the source A separation of 3 feet from the wellspring of the vitality ought to be kept up to guarantee the administrator\'s security.

Instrumentation Master Power Switch : Turns the unit on. Yield Intensity (Power) : Adjusts the measure of vitality conveyed to the patient. Understanding Interrupt Switch (Safety Switch) : A pushbutton switch held by the patient that permits prompt end of the treatment. Delay : Interrupts the treatment to permit repositioning of the patient, and so on

Slide 8

Instrumentation (Cont.) Pulse Rate (Pulse Frequency) : Sets the quantity of heartbeats every second (PPS) for the yield. Begin/Stop : Initiates or ends the treatment. Treatment Timer : Sets the treatment length. Tuning : Adjusts the yield reverberation to coordinate the patient\'s tissues. A few units will stop if an off key state is identified Most contemporary units are self-tuning

Slide 9

Patient Preparation Ensure that the patient is free of all contraindications to the utilization of shortwave diathermy. Evacuate all gems, garments, coins, and other metallic things from the patient. For individual wellbeing, the clinician ought to evacuate any rings, watches, wristbands, and so forth. There must be no metal inside the quick treatment region Keep the patient far from any metal questions that can fill in as a ground (e.g., outlets, funnels). Spotless and dry the body part. Water, skin oils, and so forth can increment shallow warmth creation.

Slide 10

Patient Preparation (Cont.) Position the patient in the most suitable way for the body territory being dealt with. To energize venous return, lift the furthest point being dealt with. To avoid smolders cover the range to be treated with a dry terry fabric towel: This gives dispersing between the wellspring of the shortwave diathermy Absorbs sweat A segment of the treatment territory must stay obvious to check for blazes amid the treatment.. Disclose to the patient that mellow warmth ought to be felt. Train the patient to illuminate you if any surprising sensations are experienced.

Slide 11

Patient/Generator Tuning If the unit must be physically tuned: Position the anodes over the patient. Increment the yield power to appx. 40% of the maximum. Alter the TUNING control until the yield meter achieves its pinnacle… … then reduction the TUNING to the patient\'s solace. A unit is tuned when not as much as half of the most extreme yield is utilized. A few units will naturally stop if more than 50 percent of the greatest yield is utilized. In the event that this happens, the unit must be tuned once more.

Slide 12

Initiation of the Treatment Drum Method Turn the unit on; permit it to warm up if vital. A few units must be tuned to take into account maximal vitality exchange. In the event that demonstrated by the maker\'s guidelines, put a collapsed towel between the body part and the drum. Position the drum around 0.5 to 1 in. over the toweling. The surface of the drum must be parallel to the skin surface being dealt with, generally the skin nearest to the drum will overheat (the Cosine Law)

Slide 13

Initiation of the Treatment (Cont.) Instruct the patient not to move until the unit is stopped. Set the TIMER to the craved treatment span. Increment the force until the patient feels gentle warmth. On the off chance that the drum must be moved or on the off chance that it gets to be distinctly important to dry the region, give back the force to zero preceding making any modification. Try not to leave the patient left unattended Regularly check the skin for indications of blazes and ask about unordinary sensations. Conform the INTENSITY, PULSE RATE, or potentially terminal situation as fundamental.

Slide 14

Termination of the Treatment After the treatment, give back the power to "zero" and close off the unit. Examine the skin for indications of smolders or other anomalous treatment results. Record the treatment parameters in the patient\'s document.

Slide 15

Maintenance Daily Maintenance Clean the substance of the drum or links utilizing a maker affirmed chemical. Standard Maintenance Inspect electrical lines for crimps and shreds. Every year The unit must be overhauled and aligned by a qualified administration specialist.
