Course information

Increase your clinical reasoning in night-time compression as a management option by exploring the evidence and various products available.

It is evident that although there is no high-level research into night-time products there are several indications that may warrant this type of compression other than the traditional reason to maintain the effects obtained from complex decongestive therapy. Many factors will influence a client to concord with this type of management especially product wearability. There is also the possibility of an increase in skin tissue oxygenation when wearing compression 24 hours per day.
