The instructions for use state the following: "do not place arcticgel pads on skin that has signs ofulcerations, burns, hives or rash. While there are no known allergies to hydrogel materials, caution should be exercised with any patient with a history of skin allergies or sensitivities. Due to underlying medical or physiological conditions, some patients are more susceptible to skin damage from pressure and heat or cold. Patients at risk include those with poor tissue perfusion or poor skin integrity due to diabetes, peripheral vascular disease, poor nutritional status or steroid or high dose vasopressor therapy. If accessible, examine the patient¿s skin under the arcticgel pads often; especially those patients at higher risk of skin injury. Skin injury may occur as a cumulative result of pressure, time and temperature. Do not place bean bags or other firm positioning devices under the arcticgel pads. Do not place any positioning devices under the pad manifolds or patient lines. ¿ (b)(4). The information provided by bard represents all of the known information at this time.
