Warnings

VT-200 treatments should NEVER cause discomfort or pain. Should the user experience discomfort during treatment; use a lower intensity setting for the treatment. If the user continues to experience discomfort, discontinue the treatments and notify your physician or Alan Neurmedical Technologies

      • Epilepsy: Patients with suspected or diagnosed epilepsy should follow precautions recommended by their physicians.
      • Neck and Mouth Placement: Do not apply stimulation over the patient’s neck because this could cause severe muscle spasm resulting in closure of the airway, difficulty in breathing or adverse effects on heart rhythm or blood pressure.
      • Consult a Physician: Consult with the patient’s physician before using this device, because the device may cause lethal rhythm disturbances to the heart in susceptible individuals.
      • Skin: Do not apply stimulation over open wounds or rashes, or over swollen, red, infected, or inflamed area or skin eruptions (e.g., phlebitis, thrombophlebitis, varicose veins).
      • Electronic Monitoring Equipment: Do not apply stimulation in the presence of electronic monitoring equipment (e.g., cardiac monitors, ECG alarms), which may not operate properly when the electrical stimulation device is in use.
      • Chest Placement: Do not apply stimulation across the patient’s chest, because the introduction of electrical current into the chest may cause rhythm disturbances to the patient’s heart, which could be lethal.
      • Electrode Placement: Never apply electrodes near the heart, head, neck or eye.
      • Children: This device should be kept out of the reach of children
      • Long Term Effects: The long-term effects of electrical stimulation are unknown.
      • Battery Replacement: The internal battery will most likely not need to be changed. The internal battery should not be changed by the operator. If there are questions, contact Alan Neuromedical Technologies.
      • Surgical Equipment Warning: Burns at the site of the electrodes and possible device damage may result from simultaneous connection of a patient to high frequency surgical equipment and the VT-200 at the same time.
      • Specific Conditions: This device should not be used in the following conditions:

 

  • Pregnancy
  • Acute and sub-acute thrombophlebitis
  • Over or near potentially malignant lesions
  • Implants of any electrical nature. Patients with implanted nerve stimulators should only be treated after full evaluation by their physician
  • Over a carotid sinus
  • In the presence of a disturbance in cardiac rhythm unless cleared by cardiologist

 

    • Stimulation Use: Do not apply stimulation during the following conditions:

 

  • When the patient/user is in the bath or shower
  • When the patient/user is sleeping
  • While the patient is driving, operating machinery, or during any activity in which electrical stimulation can put the patient at risk of injury
