Compression Stockings Instructions
Your physician has recommended that you use compression stockings to control swelling. They have determined the amount of pressure that will best aid your veins in pumping the blood back to the heart. Follow these instructions for the best outcome. If you have any questions please call the Blank Vascular Center.
Refer to supplier list and call to set up an appointment for measuring and fitting.
Be certain to bring your prescription with you for your appointment.
Elevate your leg(s) when possible.
Apply your stocking first thing in the morning before you walk around too much on your legs- this is when swelling will be minimal.
Remove stockings every night. Rinse your stockings daily
