WHAT IS DEEP VEIN THROMBOSIS (DVT)
Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)
Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) occurs when a blood clot (thrombus) forms in one or more of the deep veins in your body, usually in your legs.
The blood clots of deep vein thrombosis can be caused by anything that prevents your blood from circulating or clotting normally, such as injury to a vein, surgery, certain medications and limited movement.
DVTs can develop with certain medical conditions that affect how blood clots. They can when sedentary after surgery or an accident, or when you're confined to bed.
DVTs can be very serious because blood clots in veins can break loose, travel through your bloodstream and lodge in the lungs, blocking blood flow (pulmonary embolism).
Intermittent pneumatic compression (IPC) devices are used to help prevent blood clots in the deep veins of the legs.
The devices use cuffs around the legs that fill with air and squeeze your legs.
This increases blood flow through the veins of your legs and helps prevent blood clots.

MODE OF ACTION
The Venera 508 DVT Prevention Device uses a cuff containing air bladders.
Cuff pressure is monitored by an internal pressure sensor switch and onboard software.
Intermittent compression is created when the control unit fills the cuff to an optimal 50mmHg of pressure and then the cuff deflates during a 60 second rest period.
The device cycles though compression and rest until it is turned off.
