DEEP VEIN THROMBOSIS is a blood clot that forms in a vein in the body
Most deep vein blood clots occur in the lower leg or thigh. They also can occur in other parts of the body. A blood clot in a deep vein can break off and travel through the bloodstream. The loose clot is called an embolus (EM-bo-lus). It can travel to an artery in the lungs and block blood flow. This condition is called pulmonary embolism (PULL-mun-ary Em-bo-lizm), or PE. PE is a very serious condition. It can damage the lungs and other organs in the body and cause death.
Deep venous thrombosis (DVT) is a manifestation of venous thromboembolism (VTE). Although most DVT is occult and resolves spontaneously without complication, death from DVT-associated massive pulmonary embolism (PE) causes as many as 300,000 deaths annually in the United States.
Treatment options for DVT include the following:
Anticoagulation (mainstay of therapy) - Heparins, warfarin, factor Xa inhibitors, and various emerging anticoagulants
Endovascular and surgical interventions
Physical measures (eg, DVT compression massager therapy)
DVT air compression therapy leg massager helps you prevent such disease happen by improve your blood circulation with the air pressure therapy designed to offer convenient DVT prevention. Based on clinically proven technology, the innovative, pre-set pressure cycle provides compression therapy to the leg that mimics the blood flow when you are walking, helping to prevent the formation of dangerous blood clots deep inside the leg.
How do DVT compression massager work?
The pressure created by the DVT compression massage pushes fluid up the leg, which allows blood to flow freely from the legs to the heart. DVT compression massage not only improve blood flow, but also reduce swelling and pain. They are particularly recommended for the prevention of DVT because the pressure stops blood from pooling and clotting.
