Hemo-Force Intermittent DVT Pumps & Tubing

  • Available in both intermittent and sequential
  • Intermittent pneumatic compression produces uniform, single bladder, alternating compression
  • Sequential pneumatic compression creates a wave of gradient compression, with three separate bladders per garment
  • Tracks therapy duration; timer pauses if therapy is interrupted and continues when interruption is fixed
  • Audible/visible alarm system for pressure faults and low battery power LED display
  • Automatically detects sleeve choice and sets therapy
  • Works with one or two sleeves without sounding alarm
  • Alarm troubleshooting guide on the front of pump

MORE ABOUT THIS ITEM

Know the risk factors for VTE (Venous Thromboembolism).

Almost all hospitalized patients have at least one risk factor for VTE.¹ VTE (venous thromboembolism) is a disease that encompasses both deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism. It is a serious, often under diagnosed but preventable complication during and after an acute medical illness or surgery.

DVT occurs when a blood clot forms in a major vein, usually in the leg. Part of the clot may break off and travel to the lungs, causing a pulmonary embolism (PE). PE accounts for five to 10 percent of deaths in hospitalized patients.

VTE is the most common preventable cause of in-hospital deaths.2 DVT and PE are also deemed nonreimbursable by CMS.3

Major risk factors

Hospital patients have a higher risk for DVT because of their limited mobility, active disease processes and comorbidities.
Risk factors include:4

  • Immobility
  • Hypercoagulability
  • Vessel wall damage
  • Age
  • Surgery (especially orthopedic surgery and total knee replacement)
  • Heredity (including the Factor V Leiden genetic mutation)
  • Increased estrogen levels (due to oral contraceptives or
    hormone replacement therapy)
  • Obesity
  • Smoking
  • Pregnancy
  • Cancer
  • Crohn’s Disease

How to enhance patient outcomes

Pneumatic compression pumps and garments lower the risk of DVT by replicating the body’s normal musculovenous pump activity.5,6 During treatment, the inflation-deflation cycle of the pump forces blood out of the legs toward the heart.5,6 Numerous studies demonstrate that pneumatic compression not only helps reduce morbidity and mortality, but also provides a low-cost and more conservative solution compared with surgical intervention and drug therapy.6

Choose the DVT therapy that’s right for your patients and facility.

  • Intermittent pneumatic compression: Use Hemo-Force and Hemo-Force II DVT pumps and single bladder sleeves to produce alternating compression of foot, calf or thigh with uniform compression
  • Sequential pneumatic compression: Use Hemo-Force SQ and Hemo-Force II SQ DVT pumps and 3-bladder sleeves to create a wave of compression for foot, calf or thigh with gradient compression
  • Static non-dynamic compression: Use our EMS compression stockings to provide constant, graduated compression from foot to knee or foot to thigh
