A compression garment is usually worn during the secondary or "maintenance" phase of Lymphedema treatment after completion of complete decongestive therapy, or "CDT". Compression garments are made in a variety of lengths, sizes and colors, and are especially designed to fit the various anatomical structures of the body.
Compression garments 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
Class III: 40 - 50 mmHg – for severe or hard to control Lymphedema
While compression garments 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.
