How to measure for Antiembolism Stockings
Measure the patient carefully to ensure that his antiembolism stockings provide enough compression for adequate venous return.
To choose the correct knee-length stocking, measure the circumference of the calf at its widest point (top left) and the leg length from the bottom of the heel to the back of the knee (bottom left).
To choose a thigh-high length stocking, measure the calf as for a knee-length stocking and the thigh at its widest point (top right). Then measure the leg length from the bottom of the heel to the gluteal fold (bottom right).
Ensure that patients who develop edema or postoperative swelling have their legs remeasured and antiembolism stockings refitted.

Provides 18 mmHg compression (medium support)
Carolon Anti-Embolism Compression Stockings are machine washable. To ensure maximum lifespan of your stockings, avoid excessive heat or bleaches and practice reasonable care in handling and laundering (see instructions included with the product for proper care).
The Carolon company recommends removal of the stocking once every 24 hours (or more often if desired). This facilitates complete access to lower limbs.
What does 'Moderate Support' mean?
Our Carolon stockings provide approximately 18 mmHg compression for comfortable wear. While appropriate for relieving heaviness or fatigue in the legs, this level of compression also helps improve circulation in order to aid in the prevention of varicosities and swelling.
