Anti-embolism stockings are also known as TED stockings. To help distinguish anti-embolism stockings from other compression stockings they are traditionally only manufactured as white stockings on purpose. These are specially designed socks featuring graduated compression zones along the entire length of the foot with a tight fit in the areas that need the most support. Graduated compression stockings can not only boost venous blood circulation, but are also beneficial in relieving symptoms of tiredness, achiness, heaviness and swelling in the legs. By alleviating many of these symptoms they can also prevent or delay the beginning of skin changes or ulcers.
Knee high or thigh high compression stockings are typically prescribed for protection against the occurrence of deep vein thrombosis (commonly also known as blood clots in the deeper veins). In other instances compression stockings are also worn by patients to boost circulation. Blood clots have a higher risk of developing in individuals who have undergone surgery or who have had a stroke. In severe cases these blood clots can detach from the wall inside the vein and travel up through the blood stream to the lungs. If they get lodged in the lungs the can block the blood flow and cause a pulmonary embolism (PE), which can be deadly.
Knee high compression stockings are often the preferred choice because patients tend to be more willing to follow through in wearing them, mainly because they are easier to put on and take off. They are also perceived to be more comfortable to wear and according to studies they cause less skin irritations.
