Selection Of Compress Type For Joint Bleeding?
Hello … whether hemarthrosis or bleeding in the knee fits ice or hot water. Please explain thanks
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
As explained by the doctor in your previous thread, hemarthrosis is bleeding in the joints that can arise due to various factors, ranging from injury, infection, blood clotting disorders, malignancy, drug side effects, and so on. Handling of each of these conditions can obviously vary, depending not only on the cause, but also the severity and condition of the patient in general. The choice of this type of treatment can be done by giving several types of drugs, physical therapy, electrical stimulation, to surgery.
Bleeding in the joints can be minimized by compressing ice cubes on the joints that are experiencing complaints. With ice packs, the blood vessels that previously caused bleeding will shrink in diameter, so the bleeding will stop. However, this treatment often cannot stand alone. Further evaluation is needed from the doctor to find out the exact cause of hemarthrosis, so that treatment can be done comprehensively in accordance with the underlying cause. Therefore, you should check yourself directly to the doctor or surgeon.
Hope this helps ...
