DFA 2019 is privileged to have Margo Asimus present on Indications for Sequential Intermittent Pneumatic Compression (SIPC) Therapy in Foot Wounds. Margo is a Nurse Practitioner who has specialised in wound management for over 22 years. As an advanced clinician she has actively participated in local, state and national wound committees. In 2015, as the National President of Australian Wound Management Association, Margo was instrumental in transitioning the association to ‘Wounds Australia’.
SIPC is an effective tool for removing oedema from the limbs and therefore an established treatment modality for lymphoedema and venous ulcers. This workshop will educate on what SIPC is, how it works, and clinical application in a variety of presentations including neuropathic and arterial ulcers. The session will also provide assessment guidance and use of device modes to individualise treatment.
- Knowledge about SIPC and how the device works
- An appreciation about how it may affect the vascular system to improve wound healing
- Increased confidence to assess appropriate patients for SIPC therapy.
- Information to determine safe, effective practice and contraindications
