remote ischemic preconditioning

remote ischemic preconditioning

,

RIPC

The protection of internal organs from ischemia by transiently blocking the flow of blood, usually to an arm or a leg, and then letting the limb reperfuse before permanent injury occurs. It is used as a pretreatment before several forms of vascular surgery.
