•Hang Sell Box
•Easy fit range of sizes
•Clinically Recommended
•Reduces the risk of Venous
Thrombosis (blood clots) and PE
(Pulmonary Embolism) in the
veins of the leg
Introduction to Venous Thrombo embolism (VTE)
Reducing the risk of venous thrombo embolism
(deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary
embolism) in inpatients undergoing surgery.
Note: SFA= Superior Femoral Artery
Introduction to VTE
•Deep vein thrombosis (DVT)
occurs when a blood clot
forms in a deep vein.
•It most commonly occurs in
the deep veins of the lower
leg and can spread to the
deep veins in the thigh.
•Rarely, it can occur in other
deep veins, such as those in
the arms
Many blood clots that occur
in DVT cases are small and
cause no hassles.
Larger blood clots may
cause the following symptoms:
•swelling of the affected leg
•pain in the affected leg
•reddening of the affected leg
The aim of
is to provide prophylaxis to
prevent the formation of a
thrombus (DVT) and Pulmonary
Embolism (PE).

Pulmonary Embolism
•Majority of Emboli occur
during or shortly after
surgery
•Many Emboli are never
recognised
•Preventative measures are
vital
•Prophylaxis saves lives
Prophylaxis with Anti-Embolism Stockings
• Compensation for
inactive calf muscle
• Circular pressure
compresses the vessels
• Reduction of vessel
diameter (lumen)
• Graduated Decreasing

Compression
Prophylaxis with Anti-Embolism Stockings
•Graduated compression stockings
(GCS) are the foundation of thrombosis
prophylaxis.
•The muscle pump of a patient lying
down is inactive, and results in a slower
venous return.
•Thrombosis prophylaxis stockings
exert pressure on the leg from the
outside. This reduces the diameter of
the veins and causes the blood flow to
speed up.
With Compression
Criteria for Effective Compression
•Graduated compression
•Bedridden/ immobile
patients – 18mmHg
•Walking patients at least
22mmHg
•Simple measuring for safety
Indications for Use
•immobile patients
•pre-, intrapostoperative
•pregnancy
•Bed bound elderly
patients
•Bed bound tumour
patients
Contraindications for Use
•Arterial circulation
disorders
•Right-side heart failure
•Massive oedema of the
leg
•Pulmonary oedema
•Gangrenous damages
Caution should be taken and
further advice sought from a
medical professional if the enduser has any of the following:
•Calf circumference exceeding 56cm
•Extreme leg deformity
•Tissue paper / fragile skin
•Pressure ulcer to the lower limb
•Dermatitis
•Immediately post vein ligation
•Recent skin graft to the lower limb
German Engineered for the highest quality!
is manufactured in Germany, is
required to meet the standards set by RAL GZ-387.
•The product is regularly tested by the independent
Höhenstein Institute, as well as being tested continuously
by the manufacturer using the same computerised
equipment.
•It is the only anti-embolism stocking in the world to be
subjected to such rigorous testing.
Features and Benefits
Composition
Features:
Latex free material – 82%
polyamide & 18% elastane
Benefits
Can be used on patients or by staff
with allergies
Immediate transportation of
Ensures natural air exchange,
perspiration to the outside of the ensuring optimal patient comfort
stocking
‘Active Breathing’ thread knit
The action of the material
transports moisture away from
the skin, preventing maceration
(softening of the skin).
This is a constant safeguard against
the development of pressure sores,
which can develop as a result of
long periods in bed.
Two-way Stretch
•Anti-embolism stockings with
lengthwise and widthways elasticity
are known as two-way-stretch
compression stockings
•The elastic weft yarn (woven
circumferentially) is responsible for
the compression and shape of the
stocking1.
•A knitted-in, elastic yarn renders the
knit elastic in the lengthwise
direction, improving the fit and
comfort of the stocking
Two-way Stretch
Features:
Benefits:
Two-way stretch that fits
varying leg lengths
and widths
Easier fitting for patients of all
sizes. Reduces amount of
sizes to stock.
•Longitudinal and lateral stretch –
fits varying leg shapes.
•Greater conformity to figure.
•Reduces chances of incorrect sizing.
Fleecy Lined Soft Heel
Features:
Benefits:
Allows for easy size and width
Colour coded heel and
identification.
top band thread.
Helps to prevent pressure sores
Fleece Lined soft heel
from developing.
Anti-bacterial and Antimycotic toe area
Features:
Benefits:
•Unique anti-microbial
Properties by Livefresh-N
from Kanebo are
derived from a physical and
chemical manufacturing
process
•The thread itself is
anti-microbial coated and
not the finishing
•Guaranteeing that the
growth-inhibiting effect on the microorganisms is maintained even after
several washes.
•Reduces hospital acquired microorganisms and fungi between and
at the base of the toes.
Inspection opening
Features:
Benefits:
•Allows constant monitoring of
the toes, without having to
remove the stocking.
Any discoloration that develops,
which normally indicated an arterial
problem, is discovered at an early
stage.
•Situated on the ball of the foot
•Allows for improved air-flow around
which is ideal for circulation checks the toes.
