The patient should be instructed to report any pain, numbness, irritation or “burning sensation”. If the patient reports any of the above, remove the cast immediately. Inspect the cast to determine the cause of the above symptoms before recasting. Burn injury may resuit from improper cast application or failure to observe précautions during and after setting reaction. Factors that may lead to excessive exotherm include: • Dip water above 25°C • Overly thick cast • Under-saturation of the plaster • Not changing dip water frequently • High room or dry bandage temperature • Inadequate air circulation: • Use of elastic bandage or blanket • resting the cast on a pillow or mattress • Caution must be used to ensure that the cast is not applied too tightly.
