antiembolism (AE) hose

Etymology: Gk, anti + embolos, plug
elasticized stockings worn to prevent the formation of emboli and thrombi, especially in patients who have had surgery or who have been restricted to bed. Return flow of the venous circulation is promoted, preventing venous stasis and dilation of the veins, conditions that predispose individuals to varicosities and thromboembolic disorders. Also called thromboembolic disorder (TED) hose.
