If you are a medical professional, you are always looking for ways to improve the quality of your patients’ lives. One area that can be particularly beneficial for patients is recovery after surgery, and Heart Hugger can help.
Support Through Recovery
After surgery, your patient will have Heart Hugger put on them by a nurse, and it will stay on during the recovery process. Prior to surgery the patient should have been fitted and sized so everything is ready. The patient retains control of the harness and can use the handles to adjust pressure.
Heart Hugger works for the patient throughout recovery and facilitates an additional means of pain management. The overall process also helps patients feel in control of their comfort, aiding further in the ability to recover smoothly.
Control and Comfort
The effect of maintaining control in their own recovery is pretty tremendous for most patients. Heart Hugger helps with pain associated with breathing and coughing among other things, and the patient learns how to use the harness to help themselves when facing that sort of pain. Being involved in their recovery helps patients heal better.
Heart Hugger is also excellent in defending against future complications of all kinds. It not only gives patients that comfort and control immediately after surgery, but it also helps the patient stay on the path to wellness with fewer possibilities of wound complications.
