The technique prevents the development of complications in patients who are treated in intensive care and have to be motionless for a long time.
More than 200 pneumatic compression devices purchased for the intensive care unit of the reserve hospital in pavilion No. 75 of VDNKh. The equipment will reduce the risk of venous thromboembolism in patients in intensive care.
“The presence in the hospital of such a life-saving resuscitation equipment, high-quality consumables and an implemented large-scale scheme for the delivery of oxygen with volumetric gasifiers once again confirms that the reserve hospital at VDNKh is equipped with all the necessary equipment that allows it to provide care to patients at the level of multidisciplinary hospitals,” said Marat Magomedov, head of the intensive care unit at the reserve hospital at VDNKh.
The pneumatic compression device is a special leg cuff. The device simulates muscle contractions that occur in a person when walking or running. Wave-like movements from the bottom up, created by air pressure, improve lymph and blood flow, which prevents blood clots. Such devices prevent the development of fatal complications in patients who are being treated in intensive care and have to be motionless for a long time.
The reserve hospital at VDNKh has created a unique reanimation complex of 208 beds, equipped with expert-class breathing, tracking and diagnostic equipment. Along with modern resuscitation equipment, a stationary computer tomograph Canon Aguilion Prime SP for 128 slices is installed in the block, endoscopic rooms are provided, there are two reception departments, there are water treatment rooms for hemodialysis and temporary storage of blood components.
There are also clinical diagnostic and microbiological laboratories. Conditions for comfortable stay of patients are created in the wards; beds are equipped with mattresses and other devices for the prevention of pressure sores.
In Moscow, patients with COVID-19 are admitted to five reserve hospitals opened in the Krylatskoye Ice Palace, Sokolniki Exhibition and Convention Center, Moskva Automobile Trade Center, Pavilion 75 at VDNKh and a hospital on the territory of the Kommunarka medical complex.
