“Effect of Pneumatic Tourniquet on Arm Swelling After Lymph Node Removal”
The purpose of the proposed study is to evaluate the acute impact of swelling caused by low-pressure tourniquet use in the setting of ipsilateral prior axillary lymph node dissection and the change in swelling reduction following tourniquet use in three limb postures versus healthy volunteers.
Device - Tourniquet 8000
Pneumatic tourniquet with appropriate upper extremity cuff, pressure sensing, and ability to set device at 40 mmHg of pressure
