PowerPoint Presentation: Lymphedema Arm Sleeves - How to Choose the Right Compression Sleeve For You PowerPoint Presentation: Compression is the most popular method of treatment for lymphedema. Compression involves many layers of covering to help give adequate pressure and protection for the arms to inhibit the collection of fluids in the arms and legs. Usually several layers of gauze and other protective fabrics are put on, followed by a lymphedema arm sleeve, which provides the actual compression needed to prevent the collection of fluids. PowerPoint Presentation: There are many different levels of compression amongst the different lymphedema arm sleeves. Different fabrics provide different levels of compression, depending on what you need. Consulting with your doctor or therapist about the correct level of pressure needed is an important first step to picking out the right one. You can choose a different sleeve to use depending on the extent of the fluid that is collecting and the condition of the lymphedema. The price of the arm sleeves will vary, as well, according to the type of fabric used to make them. There are a variety of different fabrics, varying from natural fibers to synthetic. Choosing which one to go with varies upon what your compression level may be. PowerPoint Presentation: A common type of lymphedema arm sleeve is standard nylon sleeve. It provides a moderate level of pressure that is a good choice if your lymphedema is not as serious. Nylon sleeves are a popular choice because they can be worn more discreetly as well. Other materials like silk and microfiber may provide further compression and last longer, but they also are a bit bulkier than nylon. PowerPoint Presentation: You may choose to go with a silk arm sleeve if you're looking for an arm sleeve that will last a bit longer. On average, a lymphedema arm sleeve should be replaced at least every six months due to the relaxation of the fibers on the compression sleeve. But, since silk is a natural fiber, and less prone to stretching out and will in general last longer than a nylon arm sleeve. Microfibers are another choice if you're in need of a compression sleeve that will apply more pressure to the affected areas. Microfibers sleeves are becoming more popular because they come in a variety of different colors, and are generally a bit more comfortable to wear for longer or extended periods of time. PowerPoint Presentation: If you're suffering from lymphedema, and as part of your therapy you've started using compression, you may benefit from choosing the correct lymphedema arm sleeve for your needs. Choosing between all the products can be difficult without finding out from your doctor or other professional which one is right for you. A perfect fit from a consultation with your doctor will help relieve your symptoms faster and safer.
