CONTRAINDICATIONS AND WHY Contraindications Hydrocollator Packs, Paraffin, Fluidotherapy™ Pregnancy (first trimester) Heat should not be applied directly over a pregnant uterus as it may increase the circulation to the fetus and this has not been studied for safety in humans. Undressed or infected wounds The infection must be cultured and treated first. The wound must be covered to prevent crosscontamination. 20 Physical Agents Laboratory Manual Diathermy In addition to concerns with application of heat, the effects of electromagnetic fields on the fetus have not been studied for safety in humans.

During the later stages of pregnancy there is no data to indicate that there would be any adverse effects as long as the treatment area does not include the abdomen, ankle,* or lower back (1 MHz). The presence of peripheral vascular disease is not a problem in itself; however, if the treatment area is involved, the patient’s tissues may not be able to maintain homeostasis or respond to an increase in tissue temperature. As long as the patient is alert and their sensation is intact, ultrasound should not cause any difficulties.

Thermal applications of ultrasound can potentially elevate tissue temperature, increase circulation to the area, and thus may enhance the growth or spread malignancy to other tissues. If the patient is unable to report pain, they can easily burn with thermal applications of ultrasound. The application of ultrasound directly over a thrombus may cause the clot to dislodge and move to the heart, lungs, or brain. There is no indication to apply ultrasound directly over a pacemaker. The potential for interference between the pacemaker and the ultrasound device exists.
