application of heat

application of heat

Placing an object, warmed above body temperature, on a body part to increase blood flow or provide relief of pain.

CAUTION!

Do not apply heat should to extremities with reduced blood supply, which could be the case in most forms of arteriosclerosis or advanced diabetes. Do not use electric heating devices next to moist dressings.

Dry or moist heat sources may be used. Dry applications include hot water bottles, radiant heat, electric pads, and microwavable fabric heat pads filled with uncooked rice, wheat, feed corn, buckwheat hulls, barley, beans, flax seed, or other similar dry materials. Moist heat is considered more penetrating than dry heat, but this is due more to the fact that water-soaked materials lose heat slower than dry ones. The application should be at approx. 120°F (48.9°C). Compresses may be kept warm by keeping hot water bottles at the proper temperature next to them. Devices that force hot water at a selected temperature through soft flexible tubing surrounding a part are available. These may be used to heat wet or dry compresses.

The compound comprises a material that is a desiccant adapted to absorb moisture from textiles during the drying cycle; an antistatic agent; and a material that, after absorbing moisture from the textiles during the drying cycle, solubilizes and evaporates from the water-insoluble, moisture-permeable, enclosed container upon application of heat to the container during the drying cycle The water-insoluble, moisture-permeable, enclosed container contains a sufficient amount of the compound such that the dryer product can be used for more than one drying cycle while still imparting antistatic properties to the textiles being dried so that static electricity produced during each of the more than one drying cycle is no more than 10 kilovolts.
