Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) occurs when a blood clot (thrombus) forms in one or more of the deep veins in your body, usually in your legs. Deep vein thrombosis can cause leg pain or swelling, but may occur without any symptoms.
Deep vein thrombosis is a serious condition because blood clots in your veins can break loose, travel through your bloodstream and lodge in your lungs, blocking blood flow (pulmonary embolism).
Blood Thinners are anticoagulant medications that may be prescribed by your physician to treat a Deep Vein Thrombosis. This means it helps prevent clots from forming in the blood.
You’ve been prescribed blood thinners because your body may be making blood clots, or you may have a medical condition known to promote them. It’s often prescribed for folks with atrial fibrillation (an irregular heart rhythm), pulmonary embolism (blockage of a major blood vessel in the lung), Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) and after artificial heart valve surgery or an orthopedic procedure like hip replacement or other types of bone surgery.
Blood thinning medications or anticoagulants save lives because they treat or prevent potentially life-threatening blood clots. However, they also pose a possible and very serious side effect which is bleeding. Since blood thinners slow the clotting of blood, unwanted and sometimes dangerous bleeding can occur with the use of these medications – especially with a fall, a head injury or a traumatic accident
Our Deep Vein Thrombosis medical alert bracelets, medical ID’s or necklaces are critically important and may save your life in an emergency situation. If you are ever hurt or injured – and not able to speak for yourself – our Deep Vein Thrombosis medical alert bracelets, or other medical ID, may be the only way first responders or doctors know how to begin treating you. If you are taking blood thinners medical professionals need to know immediately. If you are taking a new oral anticoagulant for which there are no reversal agents, doctors still need to know so they can care for you to the best of their abilities.
The American College of Emergency Physicians advises people to carry a emergency medical ID card or wear medical ID jewelry if they have a health condition, allergy, implanted device or if they are taking medications that might be life-threatening.”
If an accident occurs and the person is too ill to communicate, a medical alert tag will help responders provide appropriate care. The alert should include a list of major medical conditions (DVT) and the reason a blood thinner is needed, as well as the name and phone number of an emergency contact.
