Instruction For Use of Paraffin-Containing Therapeutic Device Vezikur-Fizomed
Paraffin-containing therapeutic device Vezikur-Fizomed is used for treatment and prophylaxis of chronic diseases of the liver, gall bladder and bile ducts.
Mechanism of action excludes external heat and involves medical inserts as the main component of the device which relieve pathological processes in the liver and bile excretion system. Paraffin-containing inserts influence the projection zone of the liver and gall bladder (right hypochondrium) mobilizing local defense and activating microcirculation, nutrition, and cellular metabolism in tissues thus arresting or significantly decreasing pain and feeling of weight and discomfort in right hypochondrium, suppressing dyspeptic and asthenic vegetative symptoms, clearing gall bladder from stagnant bile and stones, restoring function of the liver, gall bladder, and bile ducts, and substantially improving self-evaluation and quality of life of the patients.
- chronic cholecystitis
- dyskinesia of bile ducts and gall bladder
- chronic hepatitis
- toxic injuries of the liver
- alcoholic disease of the liver
The device can be used to relieve pain and other acute symptoms, and improve the general condition and quality of life in patients with multiple calculi occupying more than 80% of the gallbladder volume, as well as in patients with an inactive and / or contracted gallbladder.
3. Instructions for use:
a) Open the package.
b) Take out the cloth case with medical insert and put the end of the waist tape (with Velcro locks) with hard area of the Velcro lock through the loop of the outer side of the case so that the hard area of the Velcro lock is directed towards the case.
c) Put the device on so that the case with the medical inserts is fixed in the right hypochondrium.
d) If required, cut off the residual part of the waist tape with soft area of the Velcro lock as shown in Fig. 2. The cutting line should be 2-3 mm away from the seam on the end which is being cut.
e) Fix the position of the device with the shoulder strap. Put the end of the waist tape with the soft area of the Velcro lock through the loop of the shoulder strap and get the shoulder strap on (see Fig.; method 1 or method 2); put the plastic lock through the loop on the case and adjust it with the regulator.
The loop of the shoulder strap should be fixed on the part of the tape with soft area of the Velcro lock. This will prevent collapsing and twisting of the tape.
If the case with medical insert can be fixed only with the waist tape, there is no need for the shoulder strap.
Tension of waist and shoulder tapes should not be too tight. The tapes should not cause discomfort or hinder movement.
