Physiologic effects of compression stockings - Buffalo Vein Specialist
Wednesday, December 26, 2012

 

What do compression stockings do physiologically ?

 

Compression stockings have been shown to be effective :

 

 

  1. reducing venous volume
  2. reducing venous reflux
  3. reducing edema
  4. reducing ambulatory venous pressures (venous hypertension)

 

The effects of venous compression on the hemodynamics of the venous system depends on the degree of comprression - 20 mm Hg versus 30 mm Hg versus 40 mm Hg.
