When you want to know more about what is involved in having your tubes tied or prpped, then you should read on. First of all, you need to know what a platelet rich plasma injector is. This is a medical device that is used in the administration of prp or platelet-rich plasma, a type of therapy for the prevention of blood clots. The reason why this is done is because when blood clots it can be dangerous and very risky, and as such it needs to be handled with special care. When you are talking about this though, you should know that there is a medical device known as a prp system that also gets involved in the process, but in a much smaller way.
The prp tubes that you see in most clinics have been designed in order to separate platelets from plasma. In a way, these are sort of like the early versions of the prp plates that were used a few years back. The main difference though is that these plates used then contained gel-like materials that would catch plasma instead of blood cells. This is one of the biggest reasons that this type of therapy became so popular, and is the reason that the procedure has become a permanent standard in the treatment of those with various types of circulatory disorders.
In essence, what happens with a prp tube is that a physician will tie one of these red blood cell producing prp tubes directly onto the scalp. Once this is done, a thin needle containing a large amount of gel (this gel is actually a gelatin solution) will be inserted into the tube. The thin needle will then move into a hole in the scalp that is sealed off by a thin layer of skin. What will happen next is that a machine known as a platelet-rich blood panel will be applied to the thin layer of gel so that the platelets will start to collect from them and be deposited into a collection bag.
The next step here is that the doctor will then inject the platelet-rich plasma directly into the bag of platelets. This will ensure that the level of prp in the blood stream is correctly monitored. In addition to this, the platelet-rich plasma will be isolated from the rest of the blood so it will be easy to monitor at all times. After this is all done, the doctor will close the prp tubes. All that is left for you to do is to sit back and allow the procedure to run its course.
Some doctors may also opt to use an additional prp kit. This is especially important if you are experiencing an unusual platelet count. These additional kits are designed to contain high amounts of the red blood cells that are needed to make up for the platelet rich plasma that was injected earlier in the procedure. These kits can either be placed directly over the scalp or on the top of the abdomen. You will also need to make sure that you are wearing a special prp mask when going through with this procedure.
If your doctor decides that he or she needs to use an additional centrifuge, you can opt to have a cardioversion machine used instead. This machine can also remove plaque from the arteries. These are just some of the options that you have with regard to what options your doctor might feel comfortable recommending. If you have any reservations about what these machines and tubes do, talk with your physician today.
