Compression UrgoKTwo menu description  

PRESSURE SPOT INDICATIONPressure system

Both bandage layers, K Tech and K Press, have an etalonnage (pressure indicator) designed to aid application and ensure the correct pressurel level is applied every time. Each bandage is printed with an ellipse which becomes a circle when the correct stretch is reached. During application, the etalonnage marks should just be covered to obtain the correct overlap.

The PresSure System makes it possible to obtain :

  • The correct bandage tension
  • The correct number of layers

Optimal therapeutic pressure is achieved when the correct stretch and the correct overlap have been obtained

1. Choose correct size
2. Achieve correct stretch
3. Apply correct overlap

APPLICATION TECHNIQUE

Before applying the bandages:

  • Doppler the patient to ensure the ABPI is greater than 0.8.
  • Assess the limb-shape to identify any abnormalities and potential pressure areas.
  • Check the ankle circumference to ensure the appropriate kit size is chosen (ie: 18-25 cm or 25-32 cm).
  • If there is a wound presented, apply an appropriate dressing.
  • Before application, position the foot at 90 degrees (“toes to nose”).
  • The bandage is best applied first thing in the morning or after the leg has been elevated for half an hour to reduce oedema.

Mode of application:

For the application of the UrgoKTwo Compression Bandage System for Venous Leg Ulcers and Chronic Venous (Lymphovenous) Oedema (read more...)
For chronic venous (lymphovenous) oedema: below-knee or full-leg application using 8, 10 or 12cm width UrgoKTwo kits (as appropriate)

Important:

  • The etalonnage on the bandages indicates when the correct therapeutic pressure has been reached. The bandages have been correctly applied to the leg when each ellipse becomes a circle and when the etalonnage is just covered.
  • Always remove any excess bandage: do not over-wrap the leg.
  • UrgoKTwo is recommended for a maximum of 7 days.
  • The two bandages making up the UrgoKTwo system are designed to be worn day and night, throughout the period between local dressing changes.
