The compression factor is measured in units of millimetres of mercury (mmHg) and based on the levels of compression desired, different stockings must be used. The 15-20mm Hg range of compression stockings are used for minor leg, ankle, and foot swelling, minor varicose during pregnancy and for tired, aching legs. If the compression lies between 20-30mmHg, the corresponding stockings can be used for post vein surgery, post sclerotherapy, moderate oedema, superficial thrombophlebitis, and for women suffering from moderate to severe varicose during pregnancy. This type of compression stockings also helps in preventing the recurrence of ulcerations.
Patients suffering from severe varicose veins lymphatic oedema, post sclerotherapy, vein surgery, venous ulcers and orthostatic hypotension should be prescribed to wear compression stockings that fall under the 30-40 mmHg range. Before using any of these types of medical compression stockings, a referral or a prescription from a medical practitioner is required. This prescription must include length and strength of stocking required.
