Getting Ready for Your Paxman Scalp Cooling Treatment

External

This information will help you get ready for your Paxman scalp cooling treatment.

You will need to come to your chemotherapy treatments ready to manage the Paxman scalp cooling part of your treatment. Your nurse will help you connect your cap to the cooling machine in the treatment suite, but you will need to get your hair ready and fit your cap on your own. To help you do this, watch the videos below and practice at home. You may also bring a caregiver, friend, or family member to your appointment to help you.

You can also find these videos on the Paxman website at www.paxmanusa.com/patients/instructional-videos
