World Thrombosis Day 2017

FACT:  Every year, 1 in 4 people worldwide die of conditions related to thrombosis – many never knowing their risk for the condition.

Do you Know Thrombosis? According to a recent study, when it comes to personal health, just under 1 in 10 of Americans say that they are concerned about thrombosis. Yet the facts show that there are approximately 10 million cases of venous thromboembolism (VTE) - commonly known as blood clots - each year around the world.

Join the global movement to raise awareness around the world about the dangers of VTE. Together, we can save lives! Here's how to help:

  • Know the risk factors.
  • Know the signs and symptoms.
  • Ask for a risk assessment.
  • Spread the word!

The two broad classifications of thrombosis are venous (VTE) and arterial (AT), depending on whether the clot develops in the vein or an artery. VTE is a condition in which blood clots form (most often) in the deep vein of the leg (known as deep vein thrombosis, DVT) and can travel in the circulation and lodge in the lungs (known as pulmonary embolism, PE).

On Friday, 13 October – World Thrombosis Day – we challenge you to educate your community about VTE and share why it's important to know the risk factors, signs, and symptoms. Understanding what VTE looks and feels like, and learning what to discuss with a healthcare professional, can make a huge impact.

Help save lives and reduce thrombosis around the world by supporting World Thrombosis Day. Share this message, empower yourself, and protect those you love!
