All post-surgical patients recovering at home are at risk for DVT due to
DVT (Deep vein thrombosis)
is when blood elements accumulate on the venous valves, creating a stationary blood clot, or thrombus, blocking blood flow in the vein.
VascuEase™ DVT helps improve post-op care from hospital to home.
Rethinking the Treatment of Calf Muscle Pump Dysfunction
We must rethink that calf muscle pump dysfunction develops in all immobilized patients which increases venous blood pooling and the risk for DVT and PE.

to learn more about the prevention of DVT
- Calf muscle pump dysfunction develops during extended bed stay while hospitalized or during home recovery.
- Bed stay leads to a 47% decrease in venous outflow.
- 50% of clots originate in the valve cusps of the soleal veins due to venous stasis.
- 75% of DVTs develop between day one and the ninth day.
- Risk for DVT is present; 17 days following TKR and 27 days after THR.
- Clotting extends until patients are fully ambulatory, making DVT prophylaxis critical.
Low Compliance with SCDs.
- Compliance is low due to heat build-up from vinyl limb sleeves.
- Nurses are frustrated with excessive time spent removing/reapplying limb sleeves.
- Hoses and limb sleeves slipping down may lead to accidental falls.
- Less than 40% of surgical patients upon discharge receive an SCD for DVT prevention therapy while recovering at home.
One-touch portable intermittent pneumatic compression device technology.
VasoCARE provides advanced one-touch portable intermittent pneumatic compression device technology for preventing DVT for all hospitalized patients and/or post-surgical patients recovering at home.
Every minute, the VascuEase™DVT device dynamically compresses the calf area for 15 seconds. Each inflation increases venous outflow which prevents venous stasis and VTE.
