What is DVT prophylaxis and when should I use it?

Posted by .

DVT prophylaxis is a mechanical method preformed to help reduce the chances of developing a deep vein thrombosis caused for inactivity following surgery. If your doctor prescribed DVT prophylaxis, one or two pads will be provided to you. DVT treatment usually accompanies CPM use for the first 7-10 days after surgery. Use the DVT as prescribed by your physician.
