Subject: Re: SCD's on a patient with calf clot
also known as venodyne cuffs, basically a fancy blood pressure cuff that covers the entire calf and periodically squeezes to reduce the risk of DVT in non active patients, come to think of it I have no idea what SCD stands for, maybe "squeezy calf device"?
