Abstract

Objective: To explore the clinical effect of procedural health exercise on the prevention of postoperative deep vein thrombosis in patients after pneumonectomy. In this manuscript patients who undergo thoracic surgery are studies to understand the effect of DVT after exercise. Methods: 118 patients admitted to our hospital from January to December 2020 were selected and divided into two groups according to the time of admission. 51 patients from January to June 2020 were set as the control group, 67 patients from July to December 2020 as the observation group. The control group was given the routine nursing after lung operation. The observation group was opened 6 hours after the operation except the routine nursing. The blood flow velocity of femoral vein and popliteal vein and the occurrence of deep vein thrombosis were compared between the two groups. Results: There were 3 cases of lower extremity venous thrombosis in observation group, which was significantly lower than that in control group (6 cases). The blood flow velocity of lower extremity deep vein in observation group was higher than that in control group (p<0.05). Conclusion: the routine health exercise can effectively improve the blood flow velocity of lower extremity vein, reduce the incidence of lower extremity deep vein thrombosis after pneumonectomy, and improve the quality of life of patients, which is worthy of clinical promotion.
