To observe the lower extremitiesv-rationale: elastic stockings are used to promote venous return. a nurse must remove them once per day to observe the condition of the skin underneath the stockings. applying the stockings increases blood flow to the heart. when the stockings are in place, the leg muscles can still stretch and relax, and the veins can fill with blood.client needs category: physiological integrityclient needs subcategory: basic care and comfortcognitive level: comprehensionreference: craven, r.f., and hirnle, c.j. fundamentals of nursing: human health and function, 5th ed. philadelphia: lippincott williams & wilkins, 2007, p. 899.
