New York, NY (PRWEB) March 21, 2013
New York Cardiovascular Associates, a leading health center for cardiac, vascular, and pulmonary care in New York City, has launched a new media campaign to raise awareness for deep vein thrombosis.
Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a serious vein condition. With DVT, blood clots form in the deep veins in the legs. Clots can break free and travel to the lungs, where they can cause serious complications, including pulmonary embolism. Pulmonary embolism can be fatal, making DVT a potentially life-threatening condition if it is not detected and treated early.
New York Cardiovascular Associates and its staff, including some of New York’s top vein specialists, have joined in the effort to raise awareness for DVT. March is DVT awareness month, and the cardiovascular center recently released a new online video and social media, including Twitter and Facebook, campaign to help educate the public about this dangerous vein disorder. Everyone can benefit from knowing the symptoms of DVT, and how to decrease the risk of serious complications.
