What to buy with Kendall SCD 700 Series Controller?

What is Kendall SCD Smart Compression System?

The SCD 700 system consists of:

  • The controller
  • Tubing sets (come with the controller)
  • Single-patient use leg sleeves and foot cuffs (purchased separately)

The Smart Compression Difference

It’s compression that moves more blood to help prevent stasis. That tracks compliance with Patient Sensing technology. That educates patients and clinicians about the risk of VTE all while keeping the environment in mind. That’s Smart Compression. The 5 components of Smart Compression:

  1. Smart Compression Adapts - It’s compression that thinks. That senses. That reacts. That provides each patient with an automated, customized compression cycle around the leg. Because a custom cycle time for them means more time for you. Introducing Smart Compression cycles with vascular refill detection. Read More
  2. Smart Compression Protects - Kendall SCD sleeves are circumferential. They’re clinically proven to move more blood. They provide positionally independent compression on all sides of the leg to reduce the risk of DVT and save nursing time. Because when compression goes around, confidence comes around. That’s smart sleeve design, and it’s available in the Kendall SCD 700 Compression System. Read More
  3. Smart Compression Detects - It’s compression that’s observant. That notifies you when a sleeve is removed. That shows true therapy delivery time, not just run time. Because when pumps monitor patients 24/7, you won’t have to. That’s smart compliance, and it’s only available in the Kendall SCD 700 Compression System. Read More
  4. Smart Compression Sustains - It’s compression that protects the environment. That helps minimize waste. That saves hospitals money along the way. Bettering our patients and bettering our world. That’s smart sustainability, and it’s available in the Kendall SCD 700 Compression System. Read More
  5. Smart Compression Educates - With the right actions, HA-VTE is often preventable. The more you know about it, the more you can do to prevent it. That’s why Kendall developed the Smart Compression Educates website, a digital library of materials designed to help the healthcare community get smart about preventing HA-VTE. Read More

Customized Compression Therapy for Each Patient

Vascular refill detection (VRD) is unique to the Kendall SCD 700 system. This exclusive technology customizes the compression cycle for each patient. VRD technology has been clinically proven to move up to 76 percent more blood over time when compared with IPC devices without VRD.

How does SCD Sequential Compression Device work?

How does SCD Sequential Compression Device work?

  • An 11-second default compression cycle is applied to the patient’s leg.
  • The sleeve deflates, holding 6 mmHg of pressure in the middle chamber of the calf.
  • Pressure is held and monitored for up to 60 seconds to allow evaluation of calf girth changes.
  • When calf girth stops increasing for 10 seconds, this signals that leg veins have refilled completely.
  • Vascular refill time is calculated and set; the sleeve deflates.
  • Vascular refill time is reevaluated every 30 minutes to account for patient variables.


When to use Smart Compression Therapy?

The Kendall SCD 700 Sequential Compression System with Leg Sleeves is indicated for:

  • Deep vein thrombosis prophylaxis
  • Pulmonary embolism prophylaxis

The system with foot cuffs is indicated for:

  • Circulation enhancement
  • Deep vein thrombosis prophylaxis
  • Acute and chronic edema
  • Extremity pain incident to trauma or surgery
  • Leg ulcers
  • Venous stasis/venous insufficiency

The Kendall SCD 700 system may not be recommended for use with leg sleeves for patients with:

  • Any local leg condition in which the sleeves may interfere:
    • Dermatitis
    • Vein ligation (immediate postoperative)
    • Gangrene
    • Recent skin graft
  • Severe arteriosclerosis or other ischemic vascular disease
  • Massive edema of the legs or pulmonary edema from congestive heart failure
  • Extreme deformity of the leg
  • Suspected pre-existing deep venous thrombosis

The system may not be recommended for use with foot cuffs on patients with:

  • Conditions where an increase of fluid to the heart may be detrimental
  • Congestive heart failure
  • Pre-existing deep vein thrombosis, thrombophlebitis, or pulmonary embolism

How to use Kendall SCD 700 Sequential Compression System?

Covidien Kendall SCD 700 Controller Set-up

  1. Place the controller on the footboard. This is done by grasping the device handle and the top portion of the pivoting bed hook and squeezing to open the gap. Place it on the foot board so it straddles the foot board and release the bed clamp. Ensure its security. Alternatively, the device can be placed on a horizontal surface appropriate for the environment, such as on a table, within reasonable proximity to the point of use. Be sure to allow adequate air flow to the vents located at the power cord cover and below the tube set connection points.
  2. The controller can operate with one or two garments attached to the patient.
  3. Plug the tubing set(s) into the back of the controller. Route the tubing toward the patient’s limbs, being careful to leave access ways clear and eliminate tripping hazards.
  4. Plug the tubes into garment(s) wrapped onto the patient’s limbs.
  5. Match the left and right ports, marked B and A respectively, with the left and right limbs of the patient. Although the operation of the controller is not affected, troubleshooting can be easier. Check tubing set(s) for kinking and secure attachment at the controller and the garment(s).
  6. Plug the controller power cord into a properly grounded hospital grade receptacle. The blue AC Power Indicator will illuminate. If no AC Power is accessible, the controller can be run using its own internal battery power.
  7. If compliance monitoring is desired, refer to Section II in the user manual.

Smart Compression System Start-up

  1. Press the Power On/Standby button to begin normal operation. If using leg sleeves, no further user intervention is required unless there is a fault condition detected or if therapy must be discontinued.
  2. The controller will beep, flash all the LED’s and illuminate the display screen. Quick internal device checks are performed, which may be audible to the user.
  3. The pump will begin to operate as part of the Garment Selection and Verification procedure.
  4. Detection of inoperative LED’s, display screen and the audible error indication function at start-up is the user’s responsibility.

Kendall SCD Garment Selection and Verification

After startup, the Garment Configuration procedure allows the user to select when foot compression is required at either of the two controller ports:

  • On the display, the Port A Leg and Port B Leg images blink to indicate the default garment configuration (leg compression).
  • Pressing either the A or B Button will cause the corresponding port’s leg image to shift to a foot image to signify foot compression. The buttons must be pressed for each port that is connected to a foot cuff to turn on the corresponding foot image(s).

Normal Operation and Pressure Adjustment

  1. Verify that the corresponding garment images match the disposable garment(s) applied to the patient.
  2. The controller automatically begins the process of applying intermittent compression alternating between limbs or to one if only one garment is applied.
  3. On successive cycles, the controller automatically adjusts its operating parameters to maintain set pressure.
  4. The pressure setting depends on the type of garment: 45 mmHg for Leg Sleeves; 130 mmHg for Foot Cuffs.

SCD Compression System Shutdown

To terminate the operation, press the Power On/Standby button on the device.


  • Leg sleeve compression is the default configuration when the controller is first powered on. Therefore, the A and B Button(s) do not have to be pressed to begin compression therapy when leg sleeves are being used.
  • The A and B buttons need to be pressed only when foot compression is to be used.
  • If a garment is attached anytime after the Garment Detection procedure has started, the system must be restarted to ensure that the proper therapy will be applied to the limb(s).
