...people should learn about the warning signs of DVT and receive prompt medical intervention if needed.
Winston-Salem, NC (PRWEB) March 19, 2013
Salem Skin and Vein Specialists is reaching out to the public in an effort to reduce deaths and serious health complications due to deep vein thrombosis (DVT) during March, DVT awareness month.
DVT is a vein disorder in which a blood clot becomes embedded deep in a vein, usually in the legs. A DVT clot is hazardous because it may break away from the vein, in which case it can be carried by the blood stream to the lungs, potentially causing a pulmonary embolism. These embolisms are life threatening, so detection and treatment are urgent matters.
Salem Skin and Vein Specialists is a leading vein treatment center in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Recognizing the alarming statistics associated with deep vein thrombosis, the center is promoting the need to educate the public about this vascular ailment. As such, Salem Skin and Vein Specialists is employing social media, including Twitter and Facebook, to spread the word.
Leading the campaign is Dr. Ray Workman, a long-time DVT expert. Dr. Workman has also created an informative video about the symptoms and risk factors of deep vein thrombosis. All people should learn about the warning signs of DVT and receive prompt medical intervention if needed.
