Study group discussion: Deep vein thrombosis

One common fact I read a few days back was after a long journey by plane, our shoes feel tighter. It's cause of venous pooling due to lack of use of calf muscles. Hence, we have slight oedema.

This is important in case of people prone to deep vein thrombosis. So they are at a high risk of life threatening pulmonary embolism.

I use the loo so many times in planes to prevent that :P

Me too.. Shuffled from seat to seat without bothering to put those shoes on.

One documentation of case was for a man who flew for 14 hrs and got pulmonary embolus!
