Introduction

Congratulations on the purchase of your Bio Compression Systems model IC-BAP-DL Bio Arterial Plus Arterial Blood Flow Enhancement System and garments.
Package Contents

  • IC-BAP-DL Bio Arterial Plus pump
  • Instructions for use
  • Garments

Intended Use

The Bio Arterial Plus Arterial Blood Flow Enhancement System is intended as an adjunct therapy for patients with ischemic disease of the lower extremities, due to one or more of the following causes: amputations (minor), angioplasty/stent failure, arteriopathic wounds, graft failure, intermittent claudication, ischemia, night pain, rest pain, small vessel disease, ulcers
Contraindications
Use of this device is contraindicated for patients with any of the following conditions:

  • Infections in the limb, including cellulitis, without appropriate antibiotic coverage
  • Suspicion or confirmation of the presence of Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)
  • Inflammatory phlebitis or episodes of pulmonary embolism
  • Congestive Heart Failure (CHF)
  • Undesirable venous and lymphatic return
  • Sepsis in the limb or limbs
  • Immediately following skin grafts in or around treatment sites
  • Pulmonary edema
  • Acute thrombophlebitis

Device Description and Operating Principle

The Bio Arterial Plus is an intermittent pneumatic compression system that sequentially compresses both the foot and calf in patients suffering primarily from diabetic foot ulcers or intermittent claudication (leg pain primarily from decreased arterial circulation). The device consists of a compression garment connected to a pneumatic compression pump. Pressure to the foot and calf is delivered via the pump’s cyclical inflation and deflation of the garment. The movement of the garment compresses the blood vessels in the foot and calf, expelling blood from the leg, overcoming blood stasis and circulation. Pneumatic compression devices are proven to reduce pain and help close up chronic ulcers.
Guidelines for Treatment
A physician is required to prescribe these settings, but general guidelines are listed below:

  • It is ultimately the physician’s responsibility to prescribe the setting and it should be written on the prescription upon referral. Every patient is unique and communication with the physician is important when setting the pressure.
  • ypical treatment is for a duration of up to 1 hour, 2 to 3 times daily

Electrical Medical Equipment

  • To avoid the risk of electric shock, burns, fire, injury, or improper treatment, read the entire instruction manual before operating this device
  • Use of accessories or a power cord not specified or provided by Bio Compression Systems could result in increased electromagnetic emissions or decreased electromagnetic immunity of this equipment and result in improper operation
  • Portable RF communications equipment (including cell phones and peripherals such as antenna cables and external antennas) should be used no closer than 12″ (30 cm) to any part of the device including the power cord – otherwise, degradation of the performance of this equipment could result
  • Use of this equipment adjacent to or stacked with other equipment should be avoided because it could result in improper operation

Do Not Use 

  • For any contraindicated condition
  • If the pump, accessories, or power cord are damaged or have been immersed in water
  • With any accessories or power cord not specified or provided by Bio Compression Systems
  • In the presence of flammable anesthetics or in an oxygen rich environment
  • In an MRI environment

  • While pressing down on foam with arch, snuggly close by pulling left tab across followed by right tab
  • Pull up gently and snuggly close upper tabs just under the knee
  • Ensure valve on back is centered
  • Snuggly close middle tabs

Operating the Device 

  • Press “Power On/Off” button to turn on
  • Current setting will briefly appear (“1Hr” for 1-hour operation or “CON” for continuous)
  • Current pressure will briefly appear
  • The device will start (in some cases, a 20 second countdown will appear while internal valve re-orientates)
  • Upon the completion of treatment or to stop treatment, press “Power On/Off” button to turn off

To change mode 

  • Begin with device turned off
  • Press and hold DOWN button and momentarily press power button
  • Release DOWN button after mode changes
