Smart Travellers

If you are a frequent flyer, you have probably heard the words “DVT Prevention”. DVT stands for Deep Vein Thrombosis, a blood clot in the “deep” large veins, usually in the legs. Flyers aren’t the only ones at risk. If you sit or stand for long periods of time, you are less likely to engage your leg muscles. Lack of activity slows blood circulation, which could lead to the formation of blood clots. Other risk factors include:

Diagnosed vein disease
Blood clotting disorders
Recent surgery
High cholesterol
High blood pressure
Excess weight
