Deep Vein Thrombosis

In this video, we learn about deep vein thrombosis (DVT), which is a condition where blood clots form in the deep veins of the body. DVT can be caused by various factors, including limited movement, injuries to veins, and hormone changes. Symptoms of DVT include swelling, warmth, pain, and redness, and it can lead to complications such as pulmonary embolism, which can be life-threatening. Treatment for DVT involves medications to dissolve the clot, and prevention includes regular activity, wearing compression stockings, and maintaining a healthy weight.
