DVT involves the formation of a blood clot, usually deep in a leg vein.
Lafayette, IN (PRWEB) March 19, 2013
The Lafayette Regional Vein & Laser Center, a highly regarded vein treatment practice in Lafayette, Indiana, is fostering an initiative to educate people about an extremely dangerous health concern.
March is deep vein thrombosis (DVT) awareness month, and the Lafayette vein center is joining the effort to decrease the number of debilitating illnesses and deaths resulting from DVT. DVT involves the formation of a blood clot, usually deep in a leg vein. The danger comes if blood clots detach from the vein and make their way to the lungs, where they have the potential to produce a pulmonary embolism. Pulmonary embolisms can be fatal if they are not detected and treated early.
Dr. Marlin Schul, a respected DVT specialist at the Lafayette Regional Vein & Laser Center, has developed a much-needed video about deep vein thrombosis prevention and symptoms. Additionally, Dr. Schul is using Facebook and Twitter to educate the public about the risks associated about this deadly affliction.
All people should understand the complications associated with DVT and immediately visit the doctor or emergency room if any of the symptoms are present.
