The goal of Compression Solutions is to
Prevent DVT at Home
CRITICAL POST-SURGERY RECOVERY
Compression Solutions is on the forefront of creating DVT solutions where patients are most vulnerable — at home after surgery.
Our products and programs increase patient safety and reduce costs. And because our focus is on preventing DVT after surgery risk at home, we make our compression products accessible, compact, and exceedingly simple to use.
Transitioning home after surgery should be a time of recovery, not risk.
THE DANGERS OF BLOOD CLOTS
While blood clots are life-saving by preventing excessive bleeding, they can also be deadly if formed in the wrong spot. After surgical blood loss, blood clots are formed to stop the bleeding. However, when formed within the deep veins, blood clots can be fatal.
DVT WARNING SIGNS:
PAIN OR TENDERNESS IN AN EXTREMITY OR GROIN
SUDDEN SWELLING OF THE LEG
NOTICEABLY WARM SKIN
CHANGE OF COLOR IN THE LEG
