Anti-Embolism stockings Stockings are elastic garments that are worn around the leg. Anti-embolism stockings are effective in curing thromboembolism. These specially designed stockings apply appropriate pressure on legs varying from 8 mmHg to 50 mmHg, which help prevent and guard against further progression of venous disorders such as oedema, phlebitis, and thrombosis.
Anti-embolism stockings are hosiery products that help reduce the threat of blood clots forming in the legs. Anti-embolism stockings improve blood circulation in the leg veins by applying graduated compression. Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a blood clot in the vein. When a blood clot is formed in the deep veins of the legs, it is called deep vein thrombosis. If the clot somehow travels and reaches the lungs, it is called a pulmonary embolism.
Anti-embolism stockings (Ted Stocking) are clinically proven to reduce the incidence of DVT by up to 50%. In addition, they promote increased blood flow velocity in the legs at 138% of baseline by compression of the deep venous system. Moreover, they have also been clinically proven to prevent the damaging effects of venous distension that occur during surgery and hospitalisation.
Are you frequently immobilised due to blood clots? If you suffer from deep venous thrombosis, also known as DVT, it is time for you to take action and find a solution that will help you live a comfortable life so that you are not constantly subjected to orders of bed rest.
If your physician has recommended that you try anti-embolism socks or hosiery to improve blood flow throughout your legs and prevent clotting, we offer great products that you should try.
What causes thromboembolism?
Lying or sitting in the same place for an extended period causes the blood flow through the legs to become slower, which may cause it to clot.
Inactivity and the effects of certain drugs, muscle relaxants, or anaesthetics can cause the veins to become more expansive and tear. Blood clots are more likely to adhere to the tears in the vein’s wall.
Changes can occur in the way blood clots. Certain medications and inactivity may change the blood’s normal coagulation process, leading to blood clots.
Why wear anti-embolism stockings? elastic garments are worn around the leg. Anti-embolism stockings are effective in curing thromboembolism. These specially designed stockings apply appropriate pressure on legs varying from 8 mmHg to 50 mmHg, which help prevent and guard against further progression of venous disorders such as oedema, phlebitis, and thrombosis.
For how long should you wear it?
The duration may differ according to your healthcare professional’s severity and recommendation. It could be two weeks or more. After surgery, it is recommended to wear anti-embolism stockings until you can move around freely and comfortably. Compression stockings come in a variety of sizes, lengths, and colours. They’re also available with different strengths of compression. You may need to wear them on both legs or just one leg. You should wear your compression stockings during the day and take them off before going to bed. Put them on again in the morning.
