Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.
did they put a compression device on it?
I am asking if they put a compression device on her or you are just asking if they should?
It is probably to prevent clots
Is it from the knee down?
Yes, if she is bleeding it should be removed.
but there is no way to know that before hand
It is good to have it on if there is no bleeding.
let me know if you have other questions.

Thanks for using justanswer.com
if there is an implant under the compression yes
but as long as the compression isn't on the implant it is fine
I have never seen a whole leg compression device.
It could have. Yes
There might be a whole leg version but it is never used in the hospital
it could have. yes
It is hard to say that without being there and seeing the situation and her chart
they might not have been anything they could have done
1)Yes, there are different pressure settings that the nurse can adjust
2)No problem. :)
That is too hypothetical of a situation
I would need to be there.
I think you covered it!
I'm sorry this happened
