AND HOW GRADIENT COMPRESSION CAN HELP
WHY YOU NEED GRADIENT COMPRESSION
Embolisms Can Be Dangerous
An embolism is the condition of an obstruction in the blood vessel, usually a blood clot or a small piece of broken off blood clot, that causes a blockage of that vessel. The most dangerous type of embolism is a pulmonary embolism, when the blood clot breaks off and travels through the bloodstream to the lungs, cutting off blood supply. A pulmonary embolism is the most serious result and can cause sudden death.
HOW WE CAN HELP
Prevent Dangerous Embolisms
Compression is one of the best methods for preventing embolisms. Many doctors and hospitals will recommend anti-embolism compression stockings post-surgery or during an extended stay in the hospital. If you are up on your feet, however, gradient compression is the best option to help counteract gravity while increasing circulation and preventing dangerous blood clots.
