Deep Vein Thrombosis preventive pump
Deep Vein Thrombosis and Pulmonary Embolism (DVT/PE) are estimated to affect between 350,000 and 600,000 Americans each year. At least 100,000 deaths may be directly or indirectly related to these diseases. The risk of DVT increases significantly after the patient has had surgery. The risk is particularly high with those patients who are required to spend a few days at the hospital before they are released home, because these patients are bound to the bed over an extended period of time. Therefore, it is crucial to prevent blood clots from forming. Medcaptain’s TP-20S DVT Preventive Pump targets the time frame between 29 and 72 hours after the surgery. It can also be used at home, when the patient is released from hospital in order to further minimize the risk of DVT, as studies have found that patients are exposed to increased DVT risk for up to 30 days after the surgery. Made of elastic, breathable fabrics, weighting less than 0.35kg and using a touchscreen, TP-20S DVT Preventive Pump is a practical, easy-to-use product, both, during hospital stay as well as at home.
