Protocols

How long should a patient be pre- and post-cooling for?

  • Pre- and post- cooling times vary according to the chemotherapy regimen being administered, and your patient’s hair type in some cases. Please refer to our cooling times chart here.
  • Top optimise chair time, pre and post-infusion times can be conducted while other non-chemotherapy drugs or medication are being infused.
  • The Scalp Cooling Efficacy Calculator can be used to show the likelihood of hair retention based on drug regimen, and also provides pre and post-cooling times.

How do we ensure correct cap fit and hair preparation before the patient starts scalp cooling?
Please refer to our tutorial videos, which will guide you through the process of how to accurately size and fit the cold cap, as well as guidance on the appropriate hair preparation depending on hair type. Please also feel free to contact our trainers for refresher sessions and additional guidance.

How can I manage my patient’s expectations around potential hair retention on their specific chemotherapy regimen?

  • The Scalp Cooling Efficacy Calculator will provide specific information about a patient’s potential hair retention based on data from the Dutch Scalp Cooling Registry
  • The Dutch Registry is a source of data from over 7000 patients, the largest of its kind globally. The Efficacy Calculator uses this data to provide an accurate indication of the likelihood of hair retention for your patient.
  • It is important that this data is interpreted as an indication of what may be possible. The percentages calculated are an average, and your patient may see more or less hair retention. There are no guarantees, but an indication of potential outcome will help to manage your patient’s expectations.
  • The calculator will also provide pre and post cooling times for each regimen.
