Blood Flow Restriction Certification Course

Course Purpose

Successful mastery of the course objectives will prepare the healthcare professional to understand and utilize Personalized Blood Flow Restriction Rehabilitation. This is a rigorously researched area ( > 300 published peer reviewed articles) that allows individuals to restore strength and hypertrophy safely after injury with very low loads.

The healthcare professional will learn the physiological principles behind Personalized Blood Flow Restriction Rehabilitation to include enhanced muscle protein synthesis, systemic responses and increased gene expression. From this the healthcare professional will be introduced to the use of PBFR in clinical settings to improve strength and hypertrophy after surgery or injury, mitigate the atrophy associated with disuse or non-weight bearing and learn the potential role of PBFR on bone healing.

To perform this technique the healthcare professional will need to use a specialized surgical-grade tourniquet. The FDA regulates tourniquets and lists them as a Class I medical device. This course will instruct the healthcare professional in proper tourniquet safety including AORN guidelines. This will include the understanding and measurement of limb occlusion pressure, the use of pneumatic tourniquets and proper tourniquet cuffs that minimize potential injury.

This is an advanced level of difficulty course secondary to the need to have a strong science foundation to understand the physiological principles that take place.
