Concerned about forming a DVT( Deep Vein Thrombosis) should be the last thing on your patient’s mind as they recover from surgery. Yet upwards of two million people are affected by this post-surgery complication each year. The American Blood Clot Association states that blood clots are the leading cause of preventable hospital deaths in the United States, with approximately 300,000 people dying each year from DVT. So what can you do to help your patient prevent a hospital readmission or other life long and possibly fatal complications?
Prescribe a PlasmaFlow device that can be used in a clinical or home environment. PlasmaFlow offers physicians another option to help tailor preventative care to patient risk and provides an alternative for patients contraindicated for anticoagulants. As hospital stays continue to shorten, PlasmaFlow provides a portable solution for patients to take home and keep. This allows facilities to offer mechanical DVT prophylaxis for the 2-3 weeks patients need it most, without the hassle of renting or servicing equipment. The PlasmaFlow device is intended to be an easy to use sequential compression system, prescribed by a physician, to help prevent the onset of DVT in patients by stimulating blood flow in the extremities (stimulating muscle contractions). This device can be used to:
- Aid in the prevention of DVT
- Enhance blood circulation
- Diminish post-operative pain and swelling
- Reduce wound healing time
- Aid in the treatment and healing of: stasis dermatitis, venous stasis ulcers, arterial and diabetic leg ulcers, chronic venous insufficiency and reduction of edema in the lower limbs
