This is a course offered for the professional seeking current information regarding the new era of the lymphatic system, which is no longer secondary to the blood vascular system. Venous and lymphatic systems are mutually interdependent. However, both systems are “mutually complimentary” ONLY when they are in normal condition and functioning appropriately. When one of these two systems should fail (e.g. chronic venous hypertension, lymphemdema), the homeostasis between the two systems is threatened and such mutual interdependence generates a new problem (Lee, Laredo, and Nevill, 2015). Phlebolyphedema emerges as a new combined insufficiency requiring proper diagnosis and treatment.
- Identify the lymphatic continuum of phlebolymphedema
- Differentiate phlebolymphedema from other types of edema
- Recognize clinical manifestations associated with phlebolymphedema
- Demonstrate proper compression bandaging applications for lower extremity phlebolymphedema
- Distinguish between inelastic and elastic garments used for compression therapy
- Examine how Near Infrared Fluorescence Imaging technology will provide opportunities for non-invasive, real-time assessment of lymphatic contribution in the etiology and treatment of venous and lymphatic disorders
