Immediate eval : 59 yo lady with paraplegia DVT history now with swollen feet and blisters. With your history of trauma, stasis of immobility, and DVT you need immediate evaluation measurement of compartment pressures and duplex doppler examination of the veins in your lower extremities. Compression stockings and sequential compression devices. See MD ASAP please and good luck.
