CAUTION


It is strongly recommended to get familiar with the technology and clinical complications, to prevent serious cardiac deregulation and cerebral hypo-oxygenation, before trying to apply PCC on a patient.


To apply this PCC technique all assisting personnel and physicians must be trained.

Even healthy patients might generate cardiac arrhythmia.

Patients suffering already from severe cardiovascular insufficiency must be treated in the neighborhood of a critical care unit.


NEVER TRY TO APPLY PCC PARAMETERS BEYOND THE CALCULATED AND RECOMMENDED MAXIMUM VALUES

Realize that the blood flow through the legs is about 20% of the total body circulation. Exceeding certain pressure limits and proper phase shifting may rise this percentage to a dangerous level.

Also forming a peripheral shunt decreasing the coronary and cerebral perfusion.
