Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) is a dangerous medical condition involving formation of blood clots in the deep veins of the leg. When a portion of the blood clot breaks off, it can travel through the blood stream an cause a PE in the lung arteries or even travel to the brain.
While an admitted hospital patient recovers from surgery, nursing staff will often outfit the patient with leg wraps that squeeze and retract on the leg’s deep veins. These electric powered medical wraps help prevent blood clots in the leg and reduce the risk of DVT and PE.
However, when leg wraps are not properly used by a hospital or doctor’s staff, the patient may face unreasonable exposure to risk of death or serious injury from pulmonary embolisms.
