A
ll blood returns to the heart through the veins in our body. Since the legs are the
farthest part of the body from the heart and are below the heart, the column of blood
in those veins exerts a considerable downward force. It follows, that even more pressure is
needed to move that blood back to the heart.
The venous system has a special mechanism for propelling blood toward the heart. It is
referred to as the “venous pump” or “muscle pump”.
All leg veins contain valves,
which allow blood to flow only
in the direction of the heart. They
are located about every inch and
a half. When we contract our leg
muscles, as in walking, the blood
is squeezed through the veins,
toward the heart, because of
the valves.
When these valves no longer
function as intended, it causes
increased venous pressure. The
column of blood is no longer
broken into segments by the
valves. This could be due to
inactivity, trauma, disease or
pregnancy. Over time, it can lead to chronic leg fatigue and swelling in the lower limbs.
When these valves fail in the superficial system, the increased pressure can lead to
varicose veins. It can also lead to more serious problems when they fail in the deep veins
of the leg. Unchecked, chronic venous insufficiency can lead to leg discoloration, stasis
dermatitis, venous ulcers and deep vein thrombosis.

Co m p r e s s i o n ho s i e r y
T
he role of compression hosiery may be as a preventative measure or as a treatment
option for active venous disease. When used as a treatment option, an adequate
compression level and compliance with the compression therapy can halt the progression
of venous disease.
Compression hosiery accomplishes this by applying gradient compression, tightest at the
ankle and decreasing in pressure as you move up the leg. This compression is normally
expressed in mmHg (millimeters of mercury). The application of compression hosiery can
benefit the wearer in several ways. By increasing the pressure in the leg, fluid leakage out
of the capillary beds is reduced and absorption of fluid by both the capillaries and the
lymphatic system is increased. This action may reduce or prevent swelling of the lower
limb. By reducing the size of the superficial veins, overdialation with blood is prevented.
This causes blood to flow more quickly into the deep veins of the leg. Finally, the
compression acts as an assist to the muscle pump of the legs in propelling blood through
the leg and back to the heart.

Co m p r e s s i o n ho s i e r y
Selecting the right compression therapy is critical for successful treatment of venous
problems. Several factors need to be considered.
Compression LevelThis is usually determined by your doctor or by using an indication
Guide based on the venous condition.
Fit – Fit is extremely important. It is the one thing that determines the accuracy of the
compression level. Make sure you fit within all of the sizing parameters of the
garment selected.
Style – Determine how much of the leg needs to be
covered by the garment. Considerations would include
the height of varicosities, severity of the condition, fashion
issues, comfort and compliance.
Compliance – It is important that compression hosiery be
worn every day. New wearers should acclimate there legs
to the pressure by extending the wear time each day, working
up to a full day after about a week. It is also recommended
that you have at least two pair of hosiery to rotate. Oils from
the skin need to be washed out daily and the hosiery should
rest for a day so it can return to its original shape and deliver
consistent compression over time.
