  • mmHg at the ankle
  • In order to treat venous leg ulcers, it is recommended to use high pressure compression (30-40 mmHg at the ankle). (hindawi.com)
  • MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: The haemodynamic parameters: amount of reflux (VFI), ejection fraction (EF) of the calf muscle pump after one tiptoe exercise, residual volume fraction (RVF) after 10 tiptoes and venous volume (VV) were determined for each patient with and without the three strengths of stocking (7, 10, 14 mmHg at the ankle) using air-plethysmography.

  • Calf
  • DESIGN: The amount of reflux and function of the calf muscle pump were evaluated before and after the application of lightweight graduated compression stockings using air-plethysmography. (biomedsearch.com)
  • Doctors
  • Another 437 patients could stop wearing stockings sooner, often within just six months, based on doctors' assessments of their risk of complications. (reuters.com)
  • pressures
  • 6 ] showed that the in-vitro pressure, in such conditions, is equal to the sum of the pressures that each stocking induces separately. (hindawi.com)
  • 7 ], the pressure under 2 stockings on top of each other is slightly inferior to the sum of the pressures that each stocking induces separately. (hindawi.com)

  • Spinal compression fractures usually repair on their own, but treatments such as over-the-counter or prescription painkillers, wearing a back brace, and re. (reference.com)
  • Finding a more effective means of treating OSA, therefore, is a high priority, and Dr. Redolfi and colleagues sought to determine whether a simple intervention like wearing compression stockings might be effective in some OSA patients. (prohealth.com)
  • Twelve patients were randomly assigned to one week of wearing the compression stockings or to a one-week control period without compression stockings. (prohealth.com)
  • These findings are what we expected," she continued, "but the extent to which simply wearing compression stockings reduced apnea in just one week was not expected. (prohealth.com)
  • It would be very interesting to see whether the wearing of the stockings over longer periods would have an even greater effect. (prohealth.com)
  • Overall, two-thirds of the people in the individualized therapy group stopped wearing compression stockings before two years. (reuters.com)
  • This is very important for patients, because wearing compression stockings - which is unpractical, cumbersome and expensive - can be restricted to around 40 percent of patients needing this prolonged therapy," Huisman, who wasn't involved in the study, said by email. (reuters.com)
  • If you have problems wearing the stockings, be sure to talk to your doctor. (wellspan.org)
  • periods
  • Each subject underwent polysomnography and overnight changes in leg fluid volume and neck circumference were measured at baseline and at the end of the compression stockings and control periods. (prohealth.com)
  • Patients
  • This is positive for patients because this means that only those who need compression for longer duration will prolong therapy," ten Cate-Hoek said by email. (reuters.com)
  • The study wasn't designed to test whether compression stockings might work better than other interventions, and it's not clear why more patients died in the individualized therapy group, the authors note. (reuters.com)
