T.E.D.? anti-embolism stockings are clinically proven to reduce DVT1?and to promote increased blood flow velocity2,3,4?in the legs. T.E.D.? anti-embolism stockings have also been shown to prevent the damaging effects of venous distension that occurs during surgery.5
T.E.D. anti-embolism stockings apply the clinically-proven graduated pressure pattern of 18mmHg at the ankle, 14mmHg at the calf, 8mmHg at the popliteal, 10mmHg at the lower thigh and 8mmHg at the upper thigh.1,4?It is important to measure the patient’s leg size to assure that the appropriate pressure pattern is applied.
