Start Time: 13:30 End Time: 13:45 The title of the session is: Anti embolism stockings (TEDs) application safe positioning and posture. The experience of the person being assessed?

1st surgical placement adult branch 2nd year student.

3. To name three reasons why some people cannot have TED stockings?
