AVICENNA LASER TECHNOLOGY Revolutionizing Pain Management and ...

  1. 1. AVICENNA LASER TECHNOLOGYRevolutionizing Pain Management and Wound Healing in Veterinary Medicine
  2. 2. What is Class IV Laser Therapy?  The process of using light energy to create a photo-biostimulative effect on the body.  Class IV Therapeutic Lasers utilize a coherent divergent beam of light that penetrates deeply into tissues without damaging them.
  3. 3. Characteristics of Light
  4. 4. Comparison of “Class IV” Surgical and Therapeutic Lasers  Light energy has the capability to penetrate into tissue to varying depths-depending on its corresponding wavelength  Surgical Laser Beam- Infrared energy collimated to a fine beam causes tissue destruction  Therapeutic Laser Beam- dispersal of same energy causes tissue stimulation  ue stimulation
  5. 5. Cellular Effects of Laser Therapy:  Increased Growth factorIncreased Growth factor response within cells andresponse within cells and tissue as a result oftissue as a result of increased ATP and proteinincreased ATP and protein synthesis.synthesis.  Accelerated cellAccelerated cell reproduction and growthreproduction and growth leading to faster repair ofleading to faster repair of damaged tissues.damaged tissues.  Increased metabolicIncreased metabolic activity- via increase inactivity- via increase in enzyme outputs, oxygenenzyme outputs, oxygen and nutrientand nutrient
  6. 6. Anti-inflammatory Effects of Laser Therapy:  Anti-inflammatory - via an anti- edemic effect as it causes vasodilatation and activation of the lymphatic drainage system
  7. 7. Analgesic Effects of Laser Therapy:  Via increased endorphinVia increased endorphin releaserelease  Anti-inflammatory -Via lessAnti-inflammatory -Via less edema as a result of lymphaticedema as a result of lymphatic system activation and lesssystem activation and less swellingswelling  Via Suppression ofVia Suppression of nociceptorsnociceptors
  8. 8. Wound Healing Effects of Laser Therapy:  Faster Wound Healing- Increased fibroblast and collagen production which are essential for tissue repair.  Improved Vascular Activity- Increased capillary production leads to faster wound closure and concomitant reduction of scar tissue formation.  Red Laser-635nm wavelength is highly effective for wound healing.
  9. 9. Immune System Effects of Laser Therapy  Strengthening the immune system response via increasing levels of lymphocyte activity and through a newly researched mechanism termed photo-modulation of blood.

  11. 11. Summary of LT Biological Effects  Faster wound Healing  Reduced Fibrous(Scar) Tissue Formation  Anti-Inflammation  Anti-Pain (Analgesia)  Improved Vascular Activity  Increased Metabolic Activity  Improved Nerve Function  Immunoregulation  Trigger Points and Acupuncture  Accelerated Tissue Repair and Cell Growth
  12. 12. Therapeutic Laser Therapeutic Laser Classifications  Class IIIa = lasers 1 to 5mw of power  Class IIIb = lasers 6 to 500mw in power  Class IV = lasers above 500mw of power
  13. 13.  1 Watt = 1 Joule / Second  Therapeutic Energy = Power(watts) or Joules/sec x Time(sec).  7.5watt Class IV laser delivers 7.5 joules/sec  or 450 Joules/min.  100mw-Class III laser delivers 0.1joules/sec or 6 joules /min  Class IV lasers typically delivers therapeutic energy at a rate 75 times faster than average Class III lasers T Therapeutic Laser Physics
  14. 14. Power Density and Wavelength “The Key to Better Outcomes”  Power Density = Power / surface area or mw / cm2  Surface area = πr2 Pie = 3.14 r = radius  Wavelength = measured in nanometers  Visible light = 400-700nm, limited ability to penetrate  Infrared light = above 700nm, increased ability to penetrate  The higher the power density and wavelength, the deeper the penetration and greater the ability to repair damaged tissues.
  15. 15. Depth Penetration of a “Class IV” Laser
  16. 16. Class III vs. “Class IV” Laser Beams
  17. 17. Class III vs. Class IV Analogy  Significantly Lower PowerSignificantly Lower Power 5 -100mW vs. 7500mw5 -100mW vs. 7500mw  Dial Up Modem vs. Broad Band-DSLDial Up Modem vs. Broad Band-DSL  50 mHz vs. Pentium IV Technology50 mHz vs. Pentium IV Technology  Penicillin vs. Clavamox for Staph InfectionsPenicillin vs. Clavamox for Staph Infections
  18. 18. Goals of Pain Management • Relieve Pain • Promote Tissue Healing • Minimize Side Effects • Restore Active Range of motion
  19. 19. Current State of Pain Management  Drug Therapy – NSAID’s, Glucocorticoids - Pain relief at expense of continued tissue destruction - Significant potential for side effects - No ability to regenerate tissue  Neutroceuticals and other Injectables - Pain relief with delayed onset - No side effects - Limited tissue regeneration capability  Class IV Laser Therapy - Pain relief typically immediate - No side effects - Profound tissue regeneration on all tissue types
  20. 20. Small Animal Applications  Arthritis (Degenerative Joint Disease)  Muscle, Ligament and Tendon Injuries  Sprains and Strain  Ulcerations and Open Wounds  Post Surgical and Soft Tissue Trauma
  21. 21. Large Animal Applications  Arthritis (Degenerative Joint Disease)  Muscle, Ligament and Tendon Injuries  Joint Injuries  Sore Back and Loin  Solar Bruising  Quarter Crack  Sprains and Strains  Ulcerations and Open Wounds  Post Surgical and Soft Tissue Trauma
  22. 22. Clinical Case Presentations • Your Experiences Here • Your Experiences Here
  23. 23. Scientific Evidence  Thousands of Published Studies  Hundreds of Double Blind Studies  Encompassing Almost all Organ Systems  FDA Cleared for Human Applications
  24. 24. How To Implement Laser Therapy Into Your Practice First Identify Treatment Population  Pet’s on NSAID’s, Glucosamines, Cortisone, and other Nutritional Support Supplements-Via Computer Search  Most Post Op Surgical Patients (Major Procedures)  Pet’s with Lick Granulomas and other Localized Chronic Non-responsive Dermatological Conditions  Trained Sales Rep or Doctor Will Visit Your Practice  To Set Up Demonstration on Human and Vet Subjects
  25. 25. What This New Technology Can Do For Your Practice  Identifies Your Practice as a State of the Art Technology Care Provider  Immediately Introduce a New Profit Center Not Requiring Doctor Administration  Allow your Technicians to Become More Valuable Team Members
