...fight against DVT, which is the cause of so many preventable deaths.
La Vista, NE (PRWEB) March 19, 2013
The Heartland Vein and Vascular Institute, a top vascular practice in La Vista, NE, is leading a campaign to foster greater understanding about an extremely unsafe vein condition. March is deep vein thrombosis (DVT) awareness month, and the vein center is participating in the fight against DVT, which is the cause of so many preventable deaths.
DVT occurs when a blood clot forms in a vein located deep in the legs. DVT clots can break free from the vein and travel to the heart, lungs, or even the brain, causing embolisms. Embolisms can be fatal, so early detection and treatment is critical.
The Heartland vein treatment center specializes in DVT prevention and treatment. Directed by Dr. Thomas Whittle, the vein clinic is using Facebook and Twitter to increase awareness about this vein disorder. Additionally, Dr. Whittle has developed a much-needed video to educate people about DVT.
All people should understand the risks associated with deep vein thrombosis and acquire direct medical care in the event he or she suspects any of the symptoms and danger signs.
