SYNCHROTM IPC System. Increases blood flow to help reduce the risk of DVT in surgical or immobilised patients.
Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) remains a major source of complications among hospitalised patients. The SYNCHROTM sequential compression system increases blood flow to help reduce the risk of DVT in surgical or immobilised patients.
Talley Synchro augments venous blood flow in the lower limb by up to 200%
Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a global issue affecting patients admitted to hospital for medical care or surgery.
With over 70% of patients at medium or high risk of developing deep vein thrombosis (DVT) failing to receive any preventative intervention there is a clear need for mechanical and/or pharmacological prophylaxis.
Intermittent Pneumatic Compression (IPC) is recognised internationally as an effective intervention which reduces the risk of DVT in both medical and surgical patients.

Overview of Intermittent Pneumatic
Compression (IPC) for reducing the risk of venous
l The pathogenesis of thrombosis involves three key elements:
o Venous stasis
o Dilatation and / or damage of the leg veins
o Changes in the coagulability of the blood
Intermittent pneumatic compression (IPC) devices modify and in many
cases overcome these elements. 1
l National and International VTE guidelines acknowledge IPC as an effective
modality which reduces the risk of DVT in at risk patient populations. 2-5
