Your partner in VTE prevention
Intermittent pneumatic compression (IPC) is a well-established and proven type of active compression and mechanical prophylaxis, commonly used to prevent VTE. As a therapy with a convincing evidence base and few side effects, IPC is indicated for use across a wide range of hospitalised patients at risk of VTE.
Based on clinical evidence, today’s guidelines recommend intermittent pneumatic compression (IPC) either as an effective standalone modality, for patients at high risk of bleeding, or as a combined therapy for patients at high risk of VTE.
Key clinical evidence supporting the use of IPC
