Adjunctive Intermittent Pneumatic Compression for Venous Thromboprophylaxis

Link to Abstract. Not a free article. :(

This is a question I would always ask myself as I would check off the boxes on admission orders as a resident, not as a fellow because the residents do it, and sometimes now as an attending. I always thought it was a waste of resources and uncomfortable to the patients to not only inject them with pharmacological DVTs prophylaxis, but also burden them with those SCDs. I’m really grateful for my colleagues in Saudi Arabia for putting together this study and sealing the deal for me as to how to manage this moving forward. A definite 🎩 tip to them
