Deep vein thrombosis is the term used to describe when a blood clot forms in a deep vein inside your body, and is most likely to occur in your lower leg, thigh or pelvis. Although DVT can affect everyone, there are some people that may be more at risk of developing these blog clots, especially on a long haul flight. In many cases, the thrombosis will not have any outward symptoms, making them very difficult to detect
Deep veins are those that sit between the muscles, and moving your muscles by walking or exercising is what helps to pump blood up through these veins and back up towards the heart. When people are inactive, such as when they are sitting or standing still, there is a chance that the blood can stagnate in these leg valves, which eventually can lead to thrombosis, the clotting of the blood. The longer you are sitting still, the more likely that thrombosis will occur. There are certain measures you may want to consider taking to help reduce your chance of developing DVT when flying, so that it doesn’t have to impact your travel plans.
