In brief: No
Vascular compromise usually refers to an arterial blockage and causes cold/white/blue/purple extremities due to lack of blood flow.
Warm, flushed skin is often a sign of an infection. Sometimes a deep venous thrombosis can cause warmth and tenderness to touch but it wouldn't cause vascular compromise.
