Contraindications in Detail

Decompensated heart failure; decompensated means that the body is no longer able to balance out the deficiencies of one organ on its own and that symptoms come to light. Heart failure is the pathological inability of the heart to pump the amount of blood needed in the body without an increase in pressure in the atria

 

Extensive thrombophlebitis; means extensive clotting of the blood

 

Thrombosis or suspected thrombosis; thrombosis is a vascular disease in which a blood clot (thrombus) forms inside a vessel (e.g. vein).

 

Erysipelas; erysipelas (literally: reddened skin) is a bacterial infection of the upper layers of the skin and lymphatic ducts and manifests as sharply demarcated, severe reddening. Erysipelas originates from small skin injuries and usually occurs in the face, on the arms or legs or, more rarely, around the navel. Other names for erysipelas are St. Anthony's fire and non-necrotising cellulitis.

 

Severe, unmanaged hypertension; in medicine, hypertension refers to an increase in pressure or tension beyond the norm. This also includes increased pressure in the blood vessels: high (blood) pressure in the arteries in the systemic circulation; in everyday language, hypertension or high blood pressure is generally used to refer to arterial hypertension.

Acute soft tissue trauma of the extremities; in medicine or biology, trauma refers to an injury, damage or wound incurred by external force. In this case, injury of the arms or legs (without involvement of the bone)

 

Neuropathy; neuropathy is an umbrella term for many diseases of the peripheral nervous system. The peripheral nervous system (PNS) includes the part of the nervous system located outside of the brain and spinal cord. Primary diseases of the peripheral nerves are rare. However, neuropathy as a secondary consequence of other diseases (e.g. diabetes mellitus) or neurotoxic substances (e.g. alcohol) is more common.

 

Occluding processes in the lymphatic drainage system; occlusion means closure; occluding therefore means to become closed; in medicine this term is used to describe e.g. closure of a vessel (vascular occlusion). Here in the lymphatic system.
