Prevention of Deep vein thrombosis (DVT)

There is growing evidence that passengers on long-haul flights are at increased risk from developing potentially life-threatening deep vein thrombosis – DVT (blood clots). Muscles and joints that become physically bored will feel tired, stiff and even ache due to inactivity. Sitting still for hours can also cause poor circulation, and when the circulation of blood through your arteries and veins slows down, muscles feel weaker and tired. Everyone is at risk, including those with no previous history of leg swelling (oedema). However, those at highest risk are:

• passengers on flights of 4 hours or more duration

• people over 40 years of age

• people over six feet tall, or under five feet tall

• people with varicose veins

• people with heart disease

• people suffering from cancer

• those with a history of blood clots

• those who have recently undergone surgery

• those who have had recent leg injuries

• women taking the contraceptive pill

Varicose Veins Treatment

These are specially designed stockings that squeeze legs to improve blood circulation. These stockings remain tight at the ankle and gradually become looser as they go further up the leg. This helps in the upward flow of blood towards the heart. Compression stockings are helpful in relieving pain, swelling and discomfort in the legs caused due to varicose veins. However, if the condition becomes worse you may need the other varicose vein treatment services, as recommended by the vascular specialist.(Important Warning: Do not fold top band over or allow Socks to roll. Not recommended for ages under 13.)
