IONTOPHORESIS PROCEDURE

IMPORTANT: See Phoresor System and electrode in­struction guides for indications, contraindications, warn­ings, precautions and directions for use.

1.  Clean skin is absolutely necessary to minimize or eliminate skin irritation. Clean both electrode sites vigorously with an alcohol wipe prior to applying electrodes to remove dry skin, salts and oils. Excess hair may be trimmed with scissors or electric clippers. Do not shave skin. Doing so may result in excessive irritation or burns.

2.               Prepare electrodes following package instructions.

3.               Place the drug electrode over the involved olecranon process at its most tender point.

4.               The dispersive pad may be placed proximal or distal to the drug electrode over a major muscle (e.g., biceps. triceps or on the forearm). Never tape, bind or com­press either electrode in any way. Properly prepared drug electrodes and dispersive pads do not require added fixation on properly prepared skin.

5.               Do not allow patient to extend or Hex the arm or to press on or lean against electrodes during treatment. This prevents circuit breaks and minimizes the possi­bility of excessive skin irritation or burns.

6.               Set treatment dosage for 24 to 40 milliampere-minutes according to package instructions (for TransQ® elec­trodes) depending on medications chosen. Use lower current and/or shorter treatment times for patients with sensitive skin.

7.               Treat every other day. Usually, no more than three to six treatments are required, however, additional treat­ments arc not contraindicated.
