Hand and foot cooling for prevention of chemotherapy induced side effects
Other grave side effects of some chemotherapeutic medicines are peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) and hand-foot syndrome (HFS)
These side effects damage nerves and the first symptoms are tingling, swelling, severe, painful swelling, severe painful redness, numbness, dehairing or open wounds - often on the toes or fingers and may continue to spread to legs or arms. This causes abnormalities and dysfunctions.
These side effects may result in a reduced dose or therapy delay. In the worst case chemotherapy has to be suspended or terminated.
Cooling hands and feet with cooling gloves and cooling footies / socks protects patients from these side effects.
