Unisex compression knee-high Anti-embolism stockings with graduated compression (18-21 mmHg) create sufficient pressure to walls of the surface and deep veins of legs to prevent blood stagnation and to direct blood circulation to the heart. The graduated compression stockings reduce the risk of DVT and are proven to increase safety during any surgery. DVT is the formation of a blood clot (thrombus) within a deep vein, primarily in the legs. DVT is considered a major health risk for patients confined to a bed in a hospital, which lowers the blood flow in the legs, which may cause blood clotting. If the clot separates, it can travel to the lungs, called Pulmonary Embolism– PE, and the consequences can be fatal.
