This study examined the prevention of deep vein thrombosis and skin response after the application of boots or calf intermittent pneumatic compression (IPC) devices in immobile patients with intracranial surgery. The subjects of this study included 60 patients in a surgical intensive care unit after receiving intracranial surgery from May to November in 2015. The blood flow velocity was measured daily to assess the deep vein thrombosis for 7 days, and the skin response of the legs was observed regularly. As a result, the boots IPC group showed an increased blood flow velocity over time compared to the calf IPC group. A significant statistical difference was observed in both the boots IPC group and calf IPC group over time (Right side; F
