Compression arm sleeves are a traditional means of providing compression and support to the arm in helping to manage and treat upper extremity Lymphedema, but may also be used to treat phlebitis, during post-liposuction recovery and other healthcare conditions. (read more)
A compression arm sleeve is usually worn during the secondary or "maintenance" phase of Lymphedema treatment after completion of complete decongestive therapy, or "CDT". Compression arm sleeves are made in a variety of lengths, sizes and colors, and are especially designed to fit the various anatomical structures of the arm. Most manufacturers also offer matching compression gloves and gauntlets that can be used along with the arm sleeve to provide complete upper extremity compression.
Compression arm sleeves are rated as to the amount of compression they apply, and it is important to choose the correct compression level that is required. Compression is measured in units referred to as millimeters of mercury or "mmHg", and should selected for treatment as follows.
Class 0: 15 - 20 mmHg – for those at risk for Lymphedema
Class I: 20 - 30 mmHg – for those at risk, or who have early or mild Lymphedema
Class II: 30 - 40 mmHg – for moderate or severe Lymphedema
While compression arm sleeves may be difficult to don and take off, there are an array of donning and doffing aids which will help the patient to easily use them. Also be sure to protect your investment by using detergents that are specially formulated for compression garments.
