SternaSafe® may prevent from:
– Respiratory complications
– Sternal wound infection
– Separated sternum complications
– May ease in breathing
While using the SternaSafe® during breathing exercises, the patient may have less fear and less pain. Because of this, better post surgical results may be achieved.
SternaSafe® gives good support and pressure around the thorax while coughing. It therefore may protect against the “gap” movement and may enhances the ventilation of the lower lung fields.
SternaSafe® may have a supporting effect on thorax during straining movements. The patient is mostly able to operate the SternaSafe him- or herself, so that the mobilisation process progresses more quickly.
SternaSafe® for which patients?
Depending of the hospital strategy SternaSafe can be use to every patient after sternotomy and especially to highly risk patients such as smokers, obese patients, Osteoporotic and patients with the diabetes.
