Driving to Reduce the Risks of DVT to Mark U.S. House of Representatives National Screening

NEW YORK, March 10 /PRNewswire/ -- The Coalition to Prevent DVT today announced the launch of its first nationwide tour to raise public awareness about deep-vein thrombosis (DVT) and to encourage dialogue between healthcare professionals and patients about this serious but preventable condition. A customized recreational vehicle will visit hospitals and local communities nationwide during the Driving to Reduce the Risks of DVT tour, promoting the importance of having healthcare professionals risk assess patients for DVT. The RV's first stop will be at Rockefeller Plaza in New York City on March 10, 2009.

That date is significant because it marks National DVT Screening Day as declared in a resolution by the U.S. House of Representatives.

DVT is a national public health crisis(1), but many healthcare professionals and patients are unaware of the risks. DVT is a blood clot that forms inside a deep vein, most often in the lower leg. Once formed, a blood clot can break off and may cause severe complications, some even fatal. A DVT blood clot has the potential to move into the lungs and block circulation to this vital organ creating a life-threatening condition - pulmonary embolism, or PE - which requires immediate medical attention.

Up to 2 million Americans are affected by DVT annually. Approximately 300,000 Americans die each year from pulmonary embolism (PE)(2), the majority of which result from DVT(3). Complications from DVT kill more Americans than breast cancer and AIDS combined(4). Building awareness through activities like the Driving to Reduce the Risks of DVT tour is crucial to improving patient safety.

"In the last five years, the Coalition has made great strides in raising awareness of the signs and symptoms o
