Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The operational characteristics of eight intermittent pneumatic compression systems were evaluated. Considerable differences between the pressure/time curves were found when different pumps were compared. The pressure attained in the garments varied from 6 to 124 mmHg and the rate of inflation from less than 1 to 9 mmHg per second.
