Federal law restricts this device to sale by or on the order of a licensed health care practitioner.  3  3 Apply Insulation Barrier & Polar Pad Always use an insulation barrier (such as Breg Polar Dressing, Webril, Kerlix, cast padding or elastic bandage) between the Polar Pad and skin. Do not let any part of the Pad touch skin. If a sterile dressing has been applied to the treatment site that does not completely cover the skin under the pad, use an additional insulation barrier. Use only Breg Polar Pads designed for the body part, sold separately. Other pads may be colder, increasing the risk of skin injury. 4  Set Up Unit  6 Skin Inspection Inspect the skin under the Polar Pad (by lifting the edge) as prescribed, typically every 1 to 2 hours. Do not use the Polar Care Cube if dressing, wrapping, bracing, or casting over the Polar Pad prevents skin checks.  6  Stop using and contact your practitioner immediately if you experience any adverse reactions, such as: increased pain, burning, increased swelling, itching, blisters, increased redness, discoloration, welts, other changes in skin appearance, or any other reaction identified by your practitioner. 7 Ending Session To stop the pump, disconnect electrical power. To disconnect the Polar Pad from the pump hose, depress the two metal tabs on the hose coupling and gently pull apart.  Page 1 of 2  Over
