Anti embolism stockings provide a mechanical pumping action and assist in forcing the blood through the veins. This reduces the possibility of clot formation. Clot formation is likely if the blood is stagnant. This happens in long surgeries where the patient is immobile for a long time.DVT stands for Deep Vein Thrombosis. Deep Veins are those deep inside the leg as opposed to Superficial Veins which are closer to the skins surface. A thrombus is a clot in the blood. Once a clot is formed, it may travel through the veins and reach the lungs. This can result in a fatal pulmonary embolism. Made to European standards using European machinery and imported yarn. DVT-18 Anti-Embolism Stockings ensure accurate and graduated compression.
