Lymphoedema and chronic oedema patients are cared for by all members
of the community nursing team. Without knowledge and understanding of
how to improve the condition, nurses feel under immense pressure in caring
for their patients. Compression garments are the mainstay of treatment in
the ‘maintenance phase’ (long-term management phase) of lymphoedema
and chronic oedema (Lymphoedema Framework, 2006). Choosing the most
appropriate garment for the patient, providing adequate compression and
controlling the oedema, is challenging. Patient concordance and wear time
will be improved if a comfortable fit is provided and the oedema is well
controlled. This article includes four case studies in which lymphoedema
patients were prescribed custom-fit, flat-knit graduated compression
garments with the addition of SoftFit from BSN medical, which proved to
provide greater comfort to the patient. SoftFit technology is a unique system
of silicone yarns, knitted into the inner welt (knitted top-band area of a
compression garment) of selected JOBST® Elvarex® and JOBST® Elvarex®
Soft custom-fit, flat-knit compression garments. All four case studies
indicate that wear time and concordance is improved by the addition of this
technology.
