the risk of developing a blood clot during long trips
You'll have patients ask about the risk of developing a blood clot during long trips...in the upcoming travel season.
Many people worry about "economy class syndrome"...developing a clot from sitting in a cramped airplane for a long period of time.
But flying first class doesn't prevent clots...neither does traveling by car, bus, or train. The real problem is not moving around to get blood "flowing" in the legs.
