Seated Immobility Causes Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)

A research conducted by the Medical Research Institute of New Zealand suggested that people who sit for long hours without moving// are said to be more prone to deep vein thrombosis (DVT).

Deep vein thrombosis is a state where blood clots are formed in the deep vein regions of thigh or calf. These clots may sometimes obstruct the smooth flowing of blood partially or completely resulting in inflammation, pain and hypertension. In the event of this clot reaching the lungs, it may result in pulmonary embolism leading to death. Blood thinning drugs are generally administered to treat DVT.

Out of the sixty two people suffering from DVT studied, twenty one of them were found to be seated for long hours before DVT struck them. Hereditary factor also played a significant role in getting this disease. This study will be presented at the Thoracic Society of Australia and New Zealand conference in Auckland shortly.

IT workers, taxi drivers, passengers on long haul flights are some of the people who are likely to be affected by this ailment. The research concludes that seated immobility is the major causative factor for DVT and suggests that desk bound people should take short breaks whenever possible.
