2.
Apply the site-specific cold therapy pad over the area to be treated. DO NOT APPLY DIRECTLY TO THE SKIN. Reference the instructions for
use supplied with the specific cold therapy pads.
3.
Adjust temperature control on the hand console starting at the blue dot (allow 10 minutes for temperature to stabilize). Then, adjust to

WARNINGS
Before using the VQ CoolCare cold therapy
unit, read instructions supplied with the unit.
Care should be taken during prolonged use
with patients who are children, diabetics,
unconscious or incapacitated and those with
poor circulation.
A licensed healthcare practitioner must select
treatment temperature parameters. Patients
need to follow those specific treatment guidelines.
Cold therapy pads and dressings are for single
patient use. Care should be taken during application of the cooling pads to avoid compromising the local circulation and the flow of water
through the pad.
If numbness occurs, discontinue use and consult your prescribing physician immediately.
DANGER — Risk of explosion if used in the
presence of flammable anesthetics.

CAUTIONS
Temperature must be routinely checked to
ensure appropriate treatment.
Special care should be used with prolonged
cold therapy sessions. This includes frequently
checking skin conditions and the temperature
reading on the hand control.
Use of this device below a 40°F (4°C) temperature reading is not recommended.
Patients vary in sensitivity to cold. Routinely
monitor patient and temperature reading to
ensure that appropriate individualized treatment guidelines are met.
If redness of the skin develops, or a change in
skin sensitivity occurs, discontinue the use of
this product immediately and contact a physician. Be aware of any nerve irritation and/or
muscular reaction that is associated with that
skin sensitivity and irritation, and discontinue
therapy until cause is determined.
The prescribing medical professional must
ensure that the patient understands how to
conduct such monitoring if the patient shall be
using the unit outside of the presence of the
prescribing medical professional, at the advice
of that medical professional.
To reduce the risk of electrical shock, do not
disassemble unit. Refer servicing to qualified
personnel.
NOTE: Only use power supply provided with the unit. Failure to do this could
damage the pump, the power supply or both.
