Intermittent Pneumatic Compression

« Back to Glossary Index

Intermittent pneumatic compression (IPC) is a therapy used to improve circulation and prevent blood clots in the legs. It involves the use of inflatable compression sleeves or boots that are placed around the legs and inflated in a timed sequence. The sleeves or boots apply pressure to the legs, which helps to squeeze the veins and move blood toward the heart. This can help to prevent venous stasis, which is a condition in which blood pools in the veins and can lead to the development of blood clots.
