Critical Recommendations Unveiled to Respond to National Public Health Crisis: Deep-Vein Thrombosis and Pulmonary Embolism
Date:3/11/2010

es are working – or not working – to prevent and reduce DVT and PE.”

The recommendations for this national strategy to further research and combat DVT and PE – collectively known as venous thromboembolism (VTE) – come at a time when concrete evidence has shown that the risk of VTE is three times higher for air travelers, according to a recent study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine. Being immobile for long periods, such as in an airplane or during a long hospital stay, increases the risk of clotting due to the restriction of blood flow. To reduce the risk, travelers are advised to stay active on the plane and stay hydrated by drinking lots of water and avoiding alcoholic beverages.

In the arms or legs, DVT can cause sudden pain, swelling, and tenderness; PE symptoms include chest pain, shortness of breath, and sweating. Risk factors include surgery or trauma, hospitalization for a medical illness, cancer, obesity, smoking, pregnancy, oral contraceptive use, age over 60, a family history of these blood clots, and others. More information on these clotting disorders can be obtained from ASH’s patient-oriented Web site, www.BloodTheVitalConnection.org.
