What is the use of DVT pump?
A DVT Pump functions as a prophylaxis for deep vein thrombosis by using an effective combination of graduated sequential compression and rapid impulse inflation. This unique collaboration of technology increases venous velocity while enhancing fibrinolysis, thus assisting in the prevention of thrombus formation.
Deep vein thrombosis is a blood clot that forms in a vein deep inside the limbs of the body. It “is the formation of a thrombus in the deep venous system that if untreated, can lead to pulmonary embolism(PE).
In 1998, the Journal of American Medical Association reported approximately 2 million Americans each year suffer from DVT pump.
Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a major health problem, which affects 1 in 1000 people in the general population each year.
It may be asymptomatic or cause swelling and pain, and can lead to potentially fatal complications.”
In most cases, this clot forms inside one of the deep veins of the thigh or lower leg.
Veins are the blood vessels that bring oxygen-depleted blood and waste back towards the heart. The veins in your legs have tiny valves that help keep blood moving back up towards the heart. But a DVT may damage one or more of these valves. This damage causes the valves to weaken or become leaky.
When this happens, blood starts to pool in the legs. DVT can also occur if people are immobile for an extended period. Movement of the leg muscles helps blood traverse up the veins as the muscles contract. When blood flows very slowly through the veins from being sedentary, there is an increased risk that cells in the blood will stick together and form a dangerous clot.
The application of mechanical pneumatic compression promotes blood circulation and increases systemic fibrinolytic action for the prevention of venous thromboembolism. Improved blood circulation helps with thrombosis prevention.
Pneumatic compression has few side effects, stands as an important alternative to chemical prophylaxis, and supports patients with a high risk of bleeding. This leg pump compression also inhibits blood platelet aggregation, one of the leading causes of DVT.
