Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a condition in which a blood clot forms inside a deep vein. The blood clot either partially or completely blocks the flow of blood in the vein. DVT occurs mainly in the lower extremities.
DVT is a leading cause of death worldwide that is a preventable global health condition. In Europe and the U.S., DVT is claiming more lives than AIDS, breast and prostate cancer, and motor vehicle crashes combined.1 Intermittent pneumatic compression therapy is a non-invasive treatment to help prevent DVT.
