Prevention & Management of Hair Loss Book
It is also called as Hypothermia cap used as a supportive care in treating cancer. It is used for the prevention of hair follicle toxicity associated with docetaxel. It reduces alopecia as a result of chemotherapy treatment (docetaxel). It contains a hypothermia cap and 2 disposal liners individually packed in a plastic bag. For best results the cap should be changed for every 30-45 minutes. Cap changes must be accomplished as quickly as possible to avoid a vasodilation reflex. The cap must be worn for the entire therapy session as an interruption could compromises their effectiveness.
