Sequential Compression Device, (DVT Prophylaxis)
Sequential compression pumps prevent Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT), blood clots that start in the leg or groin. Those clots have the potential to travel into the lungs causing a blockage known as a pulmonary embolism (PE) which can result in sudden death. Obstetricians have recently called for revisions in health guidelines to include DVT compression devices as required wear for any woman before and during a scheduled cesarean section. Sequential pumps work by mimicking the blood pumping action in the leg to promote normal blood flow and are commonly used on patients undergoing surgery.
DJO™, Aircast, Venaflow® Elite System
The VenaFlow® Elite System functions as a prophylaxis for deep vein thrombosis (DVT) by using rapid inflation combined with graduated sequential compression . This unique technological combination makes it the only device proven to mimic ambulatory physiologic blood flows.
THIS DEVICE IS ONLY AVAILABLE ON A 28 DAY RENTAL BASIS.
