Medopad Transforms Deep Vein Disease Treatments

  • Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust is the latest hospital to use Medopad’s Patient Monitoring to help treat patients with venous diseases.

  • The hospital’s highly specialised vascular team, one of the world’s most respected clinics for deep vein disease management and research, is pioneering the use of Medopad.

  • The two diseases in question are Post-Thrombotic Syndrome (PTS, which is caused by Deep Vein Thrombosis), and Chronic Venous Insufficiency CVI) – a long-term condition that develops independently of DVT.

  • Both diseases are incurable and patients are supported by a dedicated multi-disciplinary care team.

  • The symptoms Medopad’s mobile solution monitors in real-time include pain levels, itching, swelling, varicose veins and in severe cases, ulceration. This data is securely shared with the care team, providing a vital real-time link between both clinicians and patients.

  • Patients also undergo multiple treatments depending on the severity of their condition - options involve compression stockings or in more developed cases, endovascular procedures and newer surgical reconstruction procedures. Medopad Patient Monitoring is now part of these treatment and recovery plans.
