Does the pill cause blood clots?
 
04:45
The answer to this question is not a simple ""yes or no"", and if you are on the pill, don't panic and speak to your doctor before you make any changes to your pill regimen. Estrogen-containing oral contraceptive pills very slightly increase the risk of blood clots such as deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism, however when taken in the context of absolute risk and relative risk compare to normal life events such as pregnancy and childbirth, the risk is still very small.

7 Warning Signs of a Blood Clot That Can't Be Ignored
 
03:31
Blood clots are caused by a variety of things and can exhibit signs and symptoms depend upon the location of the clot Do you normally go on long plane rides? If you do, you probably already know that staying seated for long periods of time on airplanes can be very harmful to your circulatory system. If you’re a woman, you've probably already heard that taking birth control pills for long periods of time is not good for your health. But what do long plane rides and birth control pills have in common? Both of them highly increase the chances of you developing a blood clot. When it comes to birth control pills, these contain female hormones in different forms that may increase the risk of blood clots. When we ride in airplanes, we may develop blood clots because we stay seated for long periods of time without moving our legs. This immobility makes it harder for our blood to circulate from our legs and feet back to our heart. When our blood starts traveling at a slower pace inside of our veins, that's when blood clots happen. When these clots keep our blood from flowing in our veins, we call that Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT). These blood clots normally dissolve on their own, but they can be fatal if they spread it to another part of our body, such as our lungs or heart. The problem is that it’s not always easy to identify these clots. Here are the seven most common symptoms of blood clots: Your arm or leg is swollen Your arm or leg is red and hot to the touch Your heart is racing and you can't breathe One of your arms or legs hurt You feel as if you are having a panic attack You feel a sharp pain in your chest You’re coughing blood At the first sign of a blood clot, seek medical attention from a hematologist. ---------------------------------------- ▶ Subscribe to the channel - https://goo.gl/3tB19z ▶ Natural Cures en español - https://goo.gl/QcoLf2 ▶ नेचर क्योर्स - Natural Cures (Hindi) - https://goo.gl/okYDFd ▶ Mindfully Yours - https://goo.gl/qXiBjy Disclaimer: The materials and the information contained on Natural Cures channel are provided for general and educational purposes only and do not constitute any legal, medical or other professional advice on any subject matter.

To receive credit, visit: http://www.freece.com/FreeCE/CECatalog_Details.aspx?ID=f51f3f45-d7ca-403e-8057-3f2e5efff1bf Program Overview Recent studies and FDA safety communications indicate that certain oral contraceptives may significantly increase the risk of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) or pulmonary embolism (PE). Likewise, prospective studies demonstrate an increased risk of DVT and PE in women using hormone therapy. However, women often need oral contraceptives to prevent pregnancy (or other non-contraceptive reasons) and hormone therapy for menopausal symptoms. So, how great is this risk? Through case studies and an evidence-based medicine approach, this webinar will present the benefits and evaluate the true risk of DVT and PE when women use these therapies. Pharmacist Educational Objectives - Describe the mechanism for which venous thromboembolism (VTE) occurs with estrogen-containing medications -Compare and contrast various components of combined hormonal contraceptives and their potential risk for VTE -Interpret current evidence that evaluates VTE risk for various contraceptives. -Evaluate clinical trials that indicate increased risk of VTE in women using hormone therapy -Given a specific patient situation, determine the benefits and risk of using an estrogen-containing medication Accreditation Pharmacist 0798-0000-13-100-H01-P Disclaimer: The Content and Program Materials contained are provided by FreeCE/PharmCon as a service to its registrants and to the public.

Deep Vein Thrombosis - Common Signs and Symptoms
 
03:58
Hi! I'm robo-Suzie and today I'll talk to you about Deep Vein Thrombosis. Common Signs and Symptoms. Also don't forget to subscribe for more tips in the future! But back to our topic. The words 'blood clot' or 'thrombosis' always leads to a degree of anxiety when mentioned. Quite often however they may be of no concern and simple reassurance is all that is needed. For example, when an injury causes minor bleeding under the skin, it leads to a classical appearance known as a bruise. When the bruise is substantial, a hard lump can be felt under the skin that can form a small clot of blood, which eventually resolves itself. But the big concern that is often mentioned by patients is the term DVT. What is a deep vein thrombosis? Veins are the important vessels that carry blood from the tissues eventually converging to take blood back to the heart. They have a bluish look to them as the blood they carry is deoxygenated. In the leg we have superficial veins and deeper veins. The superficial veins are often easily visible, and it is these that often become incompetent leading to a varicose form. It is the deeper veins in the calf and thigh that can cause real trouble! When a clot forms in these veins they lead to swelling and pain in the surrounding tissues. What are the common symptoms? Swelling and pain soon become quite obvious in the lower limbs and usually only one side is affected. The calf is the commonest site of pain. Redness and swelling then develop. Measuring one calf in comparison to the other often shows a significant difference. Tenderness is exquisite when pressure is put at the back of the calf or thigh. What are the risk factors? In the early 19th century, a German scientist called Rudolf Virchow discovered the triad of factors that lead to the formation of a clot. These were: Hypercoagulibility. Haemodynamic changes. Endothelial injury. This all sounds very scientific, but in this modern age, this triad is quite easily fulfilled due to a number of important changes that now affect almost everyone. Long haul travel and long operative procedures (thanks to modern day anaesthetic techniques) are two very important risk factors. Also the use of the combined contraceptive, the ever growing epidemic of obesity, and the increasing human under activity due to modern transport, are all to blame. Let us break this triad down to understand it. Hypercoaguable states are caused by cancer, pregnancy, genetic blood disorders called thrombophilia, dehydration and being on the combined pill. Haemodynamic changes occur with stasis. So people on long haul travel, having long operations or obesity. Endothelial damage occurs during surgery, by smoking, when stuck in a position for a long time (long haul flying). So it is quite easy now to see why it is becoming more common. Why is it a problem? The biggest concern with the formation of a clot in the deep veins is the risk that this clot may dislodge and shoot to the lung. If the clot is big enough, this can be fatal. What to do if you suspect a DVT? The important thing is to seek medical advice sooner rather than later. With simple history taking and examination, the doctor can quickly ascertain whether further investigations are required, and a quick diagnosis will lead to early treatment, which is essential. Avoidance of DVT. This is the key. To avoid a DVT, if any of the above risk factors are a possibility, various options are available. Please speak to your doctor about these as guidelines often change, and each person has their own individual risk. That's it! Thank you.

Acne Treatment - Birth Control Pills
 
03:07
Dr. Richard Thomas talks about how birth control pills can play an important role in treating acne. Isotretinoin--Accutane is also briefed. A must watch for those considering these treatments. The male hormone, testosterone and how sensitive the receptors are play an important role in acne. For this reason, birth control pills like Yazmin play an important role in the treatment of adult female acne. There are some important and potentially serious side-effects that can't be ignored, like deep vein thrombosis, but overall, the very low probabilities suggest that these treatments are still very viable as part of the treatment armamentum. Similarly, drugs like Accutane (Isotretinoin) are often thought of as dangerous, reckless treatment options due to their potentially very serious side-effects. From a risk-reward perspective, however, we should remember that these affect very small numbers of people, and for many patients, they can make life-changing and positive improvements in their moderate to severe acne. Dr. Richard Thomas is a dermatologist that currently practices at Sidra Research and Medical Centre in Doha, Qatar. http://www.sidra.org/ What kind of content would you like to see?

What Women Need to Know About Blood Clots
 
01:18
http://www.dailyrx.com/newer-birth-control-pills-and-blood-clot-risk-linked Taking "the pill" has become a routine part of life for many women around the world. But that doesn't mean birth control pills are entirely without risk. A new study found that women who used newer types of birth control pills had a higher risk of blood clots. "About 9 percent of women of reproductive age worldwide use [birth control pills]," wrote lead study author Yana Vinogradova, research fellow in medical statistics at the University of Nottingham, UK, and colleagues. "This percentage rises to 18 percent of women in developed countries and 28 percent of women in the United Kingdom. Although [birth control pills] are generally effective in preventing pregnancy, they have measurable side effects such as venous thromboembolism (VTE)." VTE involves a blood clot in a deep vein — often in the leg — which can sometimes result in a clot that moves to the lungs. VTE can cause serious complications and death. Blood clots form when there is damage to the lining of a blood vessel. These clots often occur in the legs or the arms, and symptoms may include swelling, warmth, redness or pain. Vinogradova and team looked at risk of VTE among women who used both newer and older forms of birth control pills. These pills differed in the types of hormones used. The pill is considered a type of hormonal contraception. Birth control pills contain small amounts of man-made estrogen and progestin hormones, which work to inhibit the body's natural hormone cycles to prevent pregnancy. Research on the effects of other hormonal contraceptives, such as the patch or the vaginal ring, was not included in this study. Vinogradova and team looked at more than 10,562 women in the UK between the ages of 15 and 49 who experienced a first-time VTE between 2001 and 2013. They compared these women to more than 40,000 women of similar ages who did not experience VTE. These researchers found that women using older birth control pills — like those containing the hormones norethisterone (brand name Micronor) and norgestimate (Ortho Tri-Cyclen) — had about a 2.5 times increased risk of VTE compared to women who did not use any oral contraceptives.

Blood clot ,DVT ,Virchow's Triad  - Everything You Need To Know - Dr. Nabil Ebraheim
 
04:04
Dr. Ebraheim’s educational animated video describes Virchow's Triad, the etiology, signs and symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment options. There are three factors that are thought to contribute to deep venous thrombosis 1-Endothelial injury 2-Venous stasis 3-Hypercoagulability = Virchow’s triad. Deep venous thrombosis or blood clots form in the deep veins usually in the legs. Although deep venous thrombosis predominantly occurs within the deep veins in the legs, it may also occur in the upper extremities. The deep veins pass through the deep tissues and muscles. Muscle contractions (Walking, running, activity, etc.) squeeze blood through the deep veins to the heart. The deep veins have valves which prevent the blood from flowing back to the feet and ankles. DVT is the formation of a blood clot (thrombus) within a deep vein. The majority of blood clots that form are small and they are usually broken down or dissolved. Large clots may form and can block the vein causing the patient to complain of pain and swelling. The clot may detach partially or totally (embolism). Some of the clots may be silent and show no symptoms. The detached blood clot may travel from the deep veins to the heart and then finally lodges itself in the pulmonary artery of the lungs. In some cases, the clot will pass through the heart to the aorta and create emboli in the brain (patent foramen ovale). Virchow’s triad contributes to the development of deep venous thrombosis. One of the triads may contribute more than the others. Platelet dysfunction is not part of the Virchow’s triad. Virchow’s triad: 1-endothelial injury: endothelial injury is secondary to injury or surgery. It induces thrombosis. May occur due to manipulation of fractures, dislocation, or from placement of retractors or pressure on the tissues. 2-Venous stasis: venous stasis will lead to platelet contact with the endothelial lining such as with use of tourniquet, hypotension, or with knee flexion during surgery. It occurs with impaired mobility in the elderly. Immobility will cause the venous circulation to slow down and the clotting factors in the blood to clump together, ultimately leading to DVT. In my opinion, the most important factor to prevent blood clots is maintaining the patient’s mobility. It is important to get the patient up out of bed and moving around when possible either on their own or with crutches. This is a simple preventive step. 3-Hypercoagulability: a-tissue debridement, collagen, fibrinogen, tissue thromboplastin. b-Blood diseases such as protein S and protein C deficiency. c-Abnormality in factor V Leiden. Risk factors for thromboembolism: 1-History of previous thromboembolism 2-Obesity 3-Malignant disease 4-Immobilization 5-Pregnancy 6-Old age 7-History of congestive heart failure 8-Oral contraceptives. 9-Genetic blood diseases (genetic hyper coagulable state). 10-Major orthopedic procedure: a-up to 60% of asymptomatic DVT in total joint arthroplasty without prophylaxis. b-Up to 20% of symptomatic DVT without prophylaxis. c-Proximal DVT in about 15-25%. d-Fatal pulmonary embolism up tp .05%. 11-Total knee arthroplasty: high risk of DVT. Low risk of pulmonary embolism. When giving prophylaxis, balance the risk of clotting with the risk of bleeding.

What do NeNe Leeks, Tamar Braxton, and Kim Zolciak all have in common? They have all had blood clots in the past. What is a blood clot? Can you die from a blood clot? Keep watching. When I asked what NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak have in common, if you've been watching this season of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, you're probably thinking not much, but both of these ladies have had blood clots in the past. NeNe in 2013, and Kim in 2015 while she was on Dancing with the Stars. Both Kim and NeNe are young, active, healthy-looking women, and we know at least one of them is very rich, so why would they have blood clots? What is a blood clot? Blood clots cause more than 60 thousand deaths in the U.S. each year, yet most people know very little about them. Today I'm going to help change all that, because over the next several minutes I'm going to give a general overview on blood clots. A blood clot, or venous thrombosis, occurs when the blood clumps together and forms a clot in the vein. Because this clots usually blocks the flow of blood in the vein, it can cause a backup of blood, kind of like a traffic jam, and then this can cause pain and swelling in the extremity, or the leg, or wherever the blood clot is. Most blood clots occur in the larger, deeper veins in the legs. They're called DVTs. Deep venous thrombosis. Now, the thing about these blood clots is that they can break off, and they can travel to the lungs, and to the heart. If a blood clot breaks off and travels to the lung it is called a pulmonary embolism. This is what NeNe and Tamar Braxton had. What puts you at risk for blood clots? The risk factors are immobility, or being sedentary, so if you're a person who travels a lot, for example, and you're sitting in the airplane for prolonged periods of time, or sitting in a car for a long car trip, at that time your legs are immobile or sedentary, and this puts you at risk for a blood clot. Other risk factors include pregnancy, obesity, smoking. Also, if you're taking birth control pills or hormone replacement therapy you're at risk for a blood clot. Cancer puts you at risk. If you've had a blood clot in the past you are at risk for a blood clot. Other risk factors are heart failure, recent surgery, and some genetic diseases will predispose you to blood clots. How do you know if you have a blood clot? Some symptoms include pain in the area of the clot, swelling. Now, for the swelling you can have swelling in both legs for example, but usually a blood clot will occur in one leg at a time, so if you're looking down at your legs, and one leg is swollen more than the other, you could have a blood clot. Also, redness, and warmth in the area of the blood clot are symptoms, and some people even get fevers with a blood clot. If this blood clot does travel to your lung, if you have a pulmonary embolism, or pulmonary emboli, then you can also become short of breath, dizzy, lightheaded, fatigued, and you can get a very rapid beating of your heart. How do you diagnose a blood clot? If you're having any of the symptoms I described then you need to contact your doctor immediately, or just go to the emergency room right away. When you get to the doctor they can diagnose your blood clot by doing either compression ultrasonography, or doing a Doppler to see if you have a blood clot. There are other tests as well that they can do, like CAT Scans or MRIs, or even more invasive testing. If your doctor is suspicious of you having a blood clot in your lungs then they can start off with a chest x-ray, but more specifically they can do a VQ Scan or a specialized CT Scan with IV contrast to see if you have a blood clot. This ends my brief overview of blood clots. Please comment down below. Like my video, share my video, subscribe to my page, and tell me what else you'd like for me to discuss. Now you know what NeNe, Kim and Tamar Braxton all have in common. As for you, I want you to prioritize yourselves. Go to your doctor. Find out if you're at risk for blood clots. Pay attention to yourself, and your health. Do your best to live your healthiest, happiest life. I'll see you next time. I'm Dr. Frita.

DEEP VEIN THROMBOSIS 12 Remedies To Prevent Deep Vein Thrombosis DVT
 
10:12
DEEP VEIN THROMBOSIS 12 Remedies To Prevent Deep Vein Thrombosis DVT. Deep vein thrombosis, or deep venous thrombosis (DVT), occurs when a blood clot forms in one or more veins located deep inside your body. These blood clots usually develop in the legs, but can occur in other areas also. A blood clot forms when blood does not circulate normally or clot properly. Some signs and symptoms of DVT include swelling, cramping pain, the affected area feeling warmer than surrounding areas and a change in the color of the skin near the affected area. Most people do not have symptoms, making it difficult to diagnose the problem at the early stage. DVT can be life threatening if a blood clot in your vein breaks loose, travels through your bloodstream and reaches the lung. This can block blood flow in the lung, resulting in pulmonary embolism. Together, DVT and pulmonary embolism comprise a condition known as venous thromboembolism (VTE). For preventing and treating DVT, you must be aware of the risk factors. These include having a blood-clotting disorder, obesity, pregnancy, an injury to your veins, surgery, some types of cancers and their treatments, heart failure, inflammatory bowel disease and family history. Prolonged bed rest, taking birth control pills, smoking and older age also put you at a higher risk. Here are some of the ways to help deal with deep vein thrombosis.. 1. Elevation and Compression 2. Exercise Daily. 3. Ginger Ginger also plays a great role in treating DVT. A natural salicylate, it can block vitamin K and thin the blood. It also boosts blood circulation in arteries and veins. Plus, it helps prevent high cholesterol, which can cause plaque buildup and inhibit circulation. 4. Cayenne Pepper This natural blood thinner also helps in the treatment of DVT. The compound capsaicin in cayenne pepper promotes blood circulation and helps prevent blood clots. It also strengthens the arteries and capillaries. Cayenne pepper also normalizes blood pressure and reduces cholesterol and triglyceride levels. 5. Eat Foods Rich in Vitamin E Vitamin E contains antiplatelet and anticoagulant properties that help prevent blood clots. It inhibits platelet aggregation and antagonizes the effects of clotting factors. According to a 2007 study published in the Circulation journal, vitamin E supplementation may reduce the risk of venous thromboembolism and those with a prior history or genetic predisposition may particularly benefit. 6. Turmeric This wonderful spice also has blood-thinning properties and can help improve circulation. Curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, helps prevent blood platelets from forming clots. It also reduces the risk of plaque buildup in the arteries. Its anti-inflammatory property helps reduce pain and swelling. 7. Garlic Garlic promotes blood circulation and inhibits the formation of blood clots. It also helps lower blood pressure. 8. Apple Cider Vinegar Apple cider vinegar is another great natural remedy. It improves blood flow and circulation, thus reducing the clotting as well as p 9. Fish Oil Fish oil has omega-3 fatty acids that contain antiplatelet and fibrinolytic properties that help treat DVT. It helps prevent arterial blood clots and aids in dissolving clots, potentially both arterial and venous. Fish oil also helps reduce blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

Certain Estrogen Products can Increase Your Risk of Clotting
 
19:58
Read more at http://www.biobalancehealth.com Blood clots are scary. You can die from them. This week we are speaking about the risks of blood clotting and what you need to know about this problem. Blood clots or DVTs can be caused by many things in both men and women. It is a well known fact that estrogen can “cause blood clots”, but is that always true? Since men get blood clots they are not always associated with estrogen (as men have very little), and only a very small percentage of women who take birth control pills or other estrogens get a blood clot so what is the real story? Blood Clots = Stasis (slow or no movement of blood) + overactive clotting factors Here is the short version that includes the Risks of getting a Blood Clot:  Genetic Risk: Only certain people, both men and women, have genetic abnormality that can cause blood clots. Anyone can be tested with a panel of 7 genetic markers to see if they are at risk for blood clots, but it is expensive and it is not considered a big enough risk to test every women going on birth control pills or hormone replacement therapy. It is true that these women who take oral estrogens (and only oral estrogen) are at a high risk of getting a blood clot… but they have to have the gene for it! This gene causes a low level of clot thinning blood factors, or a high number of clot making factors, or both. Other risks for blood clots in both sexes, with or without the genetic issue, include  Obesity-causes pressure on the venous return to the heart and slow the blood flow down. When blood slows down, and clots form.  Lack of movement—long car rides or flights during which you don’t move your lower extremities causes the blood to pool in your lower legs and lack of movement of blood cause clots. A remedy for this is to wear compression stockings or socks on long flights or rides and get up and move at least once an hour.  Low Oxygen environments—often low oxygen tension in the air like on airline flights can cause blood to thicken and that slows the movement of the blood causing a clot. Low Os plus lack of movement is high risk for most people and very high risk for those with clotting disorder genetics.  Thick Blood—several medical conditions cause the blood to thicken with too many red blood cells, too many platelets or both and or high cholesterol and triglycerides. This environment slows the blood down causing clots. Medical conditions called Hemochromatosis, Familial Erythrocytosis, and Thrombocytosis are in this group. People who are affected by these medical conditions need to therapeutically give blood to remove the cells that thicken their blood regularly. Those with high lipids need lipid lowering medications.  Arteriosclerosis is plaque on the arteries and these plaques cause the blood to slow down and swirl, setting up the beginning of a blood clot.  Oral estrogens only—not patches, vaginal rings, vaginal tablets or pellets placed under the skin can cause blood clots. It is the estrogen going through the liver that increases the production of clotting factors from the liver and increase the risk of clotting.

Yaz & Yasmin Related to Increased Risk of Deep Vein Thrombosis - Gerard Ryan Explains

Yaz & Yasmin Related to Increased Risk of Deep Vein Thrombosis - Gerard Ryan explains more at https://www.yourlawyer.com/defective-drug-attorneys/ Watch as Gerard Ryan of Parker Waichman talks about how women everywhere have come to rely on birth control options such as Yaz and Yasmin, but are they safe? This generation of birth control pills includes a hormone called drospirenone. The hormone is a diuretic and slows the blood flow of your body. This complication has led to heart attacks, strokes, and even death for patients using Yaz or Yasmin. The drug can also cause a condition called deep vein thrombosis (commonly referred to as DVT). What this condition does is throw blood clots throughout the body and this blocks blood flow to vital organs. Blood clots can be extremely severe and lead to death in a number of cases.

What is HORMONAL CONTRACEPTION? What does HORMONAL CONTRACEPTION mean?
 
02:22
What is HORMONAL CONTRACEPTION? What does HORMONAL CONTRACEPTION mean? Hormonal contraception refers to birth control methods that act on the endocrine system. Almost all methods are composed of steroid hormones, although in India one selective estrogen receptor modulator is marketed as a contraceptive. The original hormonal method—the combined oral contraceptive pill—was first marketed as a contraceptive in 1960. In the ensuing decades many other delivery methods have been developed, although the oral and injectable methods are by far the most popular. Altogether, 18% of the world's contraceptive users rely on hormonal methods. Hormonal contraception is highly effective: when taken on the prescribed schedule, users of steroid hormone methods experience pregnancy rates of less than 1% per year. Perfect-use pregnancy rates for most hormonal contraceptives are usually around the 0.3% rate or less. Currently available methods can only be used by women; the development of a male hormonal contraceptive is an active research area. There are two main types of hormonal contraceptive formulations: combined methods which contain both an estrogen and a progestin, and progestogen-only methods which contain only progesterone or one of its synthetic analogues (progestins). Combined methods work by suppressing ovulation and thickening cervical mucus; while progestogen-only methods reduce the frequency of ovulation, most of them rely more heavily on changes in cervical mucus. The incidence of certain side effects is different for the different formulations: for example, breakthrough bleeding is much more common with progestogen-only methods. Certain serious complications occasionally caused by estrogen-containing contraceptives are not believed to be caused by progestogen-only formulations: deep vein thrombosis is one example of this.

How to Diagnose Pulmonary Embolism pe management
 
11:40
How to Diagnose Pulmonary Embolism pe management DISCLAIMER:This video only for educational purpose today i want show you 3 methods A pulmonary embolism is a sudden blockage of an artery in the lung. It is caused by a blood clot, most often that originated in a vein of the lower extremity.[1] To diagnose a pulmonary embolism, it is key to recognize suspicious signs and symptoms, and also to undergo a series of diagnostic tests and evaluations. If you suspect that you may have a PE (pulmonary embolism), go to the Emergency Room immediately or call 911 depending on the severity of the symptoms. Recognizing Signs and Symptoms 1 Recognize the signs and symptoms of a potential pulmonary embolism.[2] If you notice these signs and symptoms, it is important to go to the Emergency Room immediately. Seeing a doctor for prompt diagnosis and treatment is key. (It is also important to understand, however, that half of people with a pulmonary embolism present with no symptoms.) Symptoms to look out for include: Shortness of breath and/or rapid respiratory rate Sudden onset chest pain (often a sharp, localized chest pain that gets worse when you take a breath) A fast heart rate Coughing and/or "hemoptysis" (coughing up blood) 2 Seek treatment if you have signs of an already-present DVT (deep venous thrombosis).[3] A DVT (deep vein thrombosis), that normally occurs in one of your legs, is often the precursor to developing a PE (pulmonary embolism). It is for this reason that, if you notice signs and symptoms of a DVT (a blood clot in your leg), it is also key that you seek medical treatment immediately. The therapy for both DVT and PE are not identical, but they are similar, so if you seek treatment for your DVT it will both treat the problem and also prevent a future PE from developing. Signs and symptoms of a DVT include: Leg pain over the calf or lower thigh, often on one side, but it is possible to have DVTs in both legs Swelling over the affected area, sometimes accompanied with a feeling of tightness on the leg Skin redness or changes in skin color over the affected area Warmth over the skin over the affected area 3 Consider your risk factors. Certain risk factors may increase your likelihood of developing a pulmonary embolism.[4] In addition to recognizing signs and symptoms, there are risk factors that make you more susceptible to developing a pulmonary embolism. These include: Being pregnant Having kidney problems Being overweight or obese Having cancer Being immobilized (either from surgery, disability, or other conditions leading to bedrest) Having heart failure Smoking Having a previous history of blood clots Taking certain medications (such as birth control pills and/or other hormone replacement therapy, erythropoietin, thalidomide, and tamoxifen) Investigating Further 1 Get blood tests.[5] If you are presenting with signs and symptoms that may be indicative of a pulmonary embolism, one of the first things the doctor will do when you arrive in the Emergency Room is order a series of blood tests. There is a blood test test called a "D-dimer," which can be used to rule out a pulmonary embolism, but not to rule it in. What this means is that, if your D-dimer is negative, you can rest assured that you do not, in fact, have a pulmonary embolism. If it is positive, however, it is suspicious (but not diagnostic) of a possible pulmonary embolism. A D-dimer test measures "fibrin degradation fragments" in the blood. In other words, it is a measure of the presence of clotting factors in the blood (hence why it is useful in the investigation of a potential blood clot in the lung - aka a pulmonary embolism).[6] Other blood tests will also be performed to rule out other medical conditions that may present similarly to a pulmonary embolism, such as a heart attack or heart arrhythmia. For instance, your doctor will test your troponin levels (a heart-related enzyme) to assess for a possible heart attack.

What Causes Varicose And Spider Veins, And How To Treat Them
 
03:57
What Causes Varicose And Spider Veins, And How To Treat Them Twisting, turning, discolored and uncomfortable - spider and varicose veins are a painful, and at the very least, uncomfortable condition that an estimated 30% to 60% of adults deal with - according to WebMD. There's many ways you can develop spider and varicose veins, and they usually show up in your legs.  Varicose veins are often painful, but not always. You can spot them as twisting and bulging veins deep in the skin that are a dark blue or purple color. You can normally find them in the legs, but spider veins you find in the legs and sometimes the face as well. Spider veins are similar to varicose veins - they can also be painful but they're found much closer to the surface and they're smaller. Spider veins are also usually red or blue rather than deep purple or blue. Causes  Spider and varicose veins are caused by a number of things according to WebMD, including: - Heredity - Occupations that involve a lot of standing like: hair stylists, nurses, teachers, factory workers etc. - Obesity - Hormonal influences like pregnancy, puberty, and menopause - The use of birth control pills - Postmenopausal hormonal replacement - A history of blood clots - Conditions that cause increased pressure in the abdomen, such as tumors,constipation, and externally worn garments like girdles. Symptoms of varicose and spider veins When looking for spider and varicose veins the Mayo Clinic says you should look out for: - Veins that are dark purple or blue in color (vericose) - Veins that are close to the surface and are red, or blue in color - Veins that appear twisted and bulging; often like cords on your legs You might also experience pain, which can be described as: - Ach, or heavy feeling in your legs - Burning, throbbing, muscle cramping and swelling in your lower legs - Increased pain after sitting or standing for a long period of time - An itch around your veins - Bleeding from varicose veins - Red discoloration of the skin, and pain in the vein When in pain you might experience more serious symptoms like: - Vein color changes - A hardening of the vein - Your skin might inflame - And you could also develop ulcers near your ankle All of these symptoms could point to a serious form of vascular disease like blood clot, and if you recognize these symptoms you need to see medical attention right away. Treating varicose & spider veins There's not one right way to treat varicose and spider veins because it often depends on how, or why you developed them in the first place. But WebMD says some popular treatments include: - Losing weight - Lifestyle changes like not wearing tight clothes, elevating your legs, and avoiding extended periods of standing or sitting  - Sclerotherapy, which injects a detergent into the vein that eventually makes it disappear - Laser treatment to make the vein disappear - Radiofrequency occlusion which inserts a catheter into the vein that makes it collapse and disappear - Surgical removal Thank you For Visiting Our YouTube Chanel Top Home Remedies.

What is Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)? Am I at Risk?
 
04:45
Hi! I'm robo-Suzie and today I'll talk to you about What is Deep Vein Thrombosis. Also don't forget to subscribe for more tips in the future! But back to our topic. Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a condition in which a blood clot (a blockage) forms in a deep vein. Although these clots usually occur in the veins of the leg, they can also develop in other parts of the body. A DVT is considered a medical emergency and if you suspect that you or a loved one might have a DVT, please seek medical attention immediately. News correspondent David Bloom died in 2003 from a DVT at age 39. It is wise to familiarize yourself with the symptoms and risk factors because knowing this information may save your life. Risk factors. A person who is inactive for an extended period of time is at increased risk of DVT. This can happen during a long airline flight, while wearing a cast, following surgery and even when in the hospital for another condition. Other risk factors include: Varicose veins . Blood clotting disorders . Family history of DVT or clotting disorders . Heart disease . Obesity . Chronic leg swelling . Dehydration . Birth Control Pills containing estrogen . Hormone replacement therapy . Pregnancy or recent childbirth . Smoking . Age (over 40 years old) . Trauma . Recent surgery. The more risk factors a person has, the greater the risk of developing a DVT. But, anyone can develop a DVT, even people without any of these risk factors. Symptoms. The most common warning signs are calf tenderness, swelling, warmth and/or redness of the leg. However, some people with a DVT have no symptoms or just a very mild discomfort in the leg. A serious complication of DVT is a pulmonary embolism, which may cause death. This happens when a clot breaks loose from the leg and travels to the lung. Symptoms of a pulmonary embolism include: Shortness of breath . Chest pain . Tightness in chest . Coughing up blood. Another complication of a DVT is damage to the vein from the blood clot which can result in chronic swelling, pain and discoloration of that leg. Diagnosis. Diagnosis can be challenging for a physician, especially when symptoms are vague. Leg swelling can be cause by congestive heart failure or venous insufficiency. Calf tenderness could be caused by tendonitis. If a DVT is suspected, a doctor will order tests that can detect a blood clot in the leg. The most accurate for diagnosis is the venogram. A venogram involves injecting dye into the vein and taking pictures to determine if there is a blockage. A less invasive option is a Duplex Ultrasound. Due to its high sensitivity and specificity, Duplex Ultrasound has replaced venography as the most widely used test in evaluation of DVT. Duplex Ultrasonography is safe in pregnancy and for those allergic to contract dyes used in venograms. Treatment. There are a few options that your doctor may recommend in the treatment of DVT. Anticoagulants, like heparin or coumadin, may be prescribed to thin the blood to prevent accrual or formation of new clots. There are now filters available that can be surgically placed into a large vein to capture the clots. Compression stockings may be used to control swelling in the legs. Prevention. If you have risk factors for a DVT, consider these tips for reducing the likelihood of developing a blood clot: Exercise you legs every 2 to 3 hours when on a long trip. Walk the aisles of a plane or train, and take regular breaks during a car trip. Drink plenty of fluids; avoid alcohol and caffeine. Wear Compression stockings. Take blood thinning medications, if prescribed by your doctor. If you are hospitalized, or having surgery, discuss preventative medication with your physician. Each year, at least 100,000 deaths are attributed to deep venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolisms. About 1 in every 1000 adults develop a DVT in a given year. Deep vein throbosis is a common, serious medical condition that all adults should be aware of. Early symptom recognition and diagnosis improves outcomes and saves lives. That's it! Thank you.

Can Deep Vein Thrombosis Happen to You? Who is at Risk?
 
03:34
Hi! I'm robo-Suzie and today I'll talk to you about Can Deep Vein Thrombosis Happen to You and Who is at Risk? Also don't forget to subscribe for more tips in the future! But back to our topic. Thrombosis is the formation of a thrombus or blood clot, which may partially or completely block a blood vessel. If blood clots form in a deep vein, the result is called deep vein thrombosis. Although the condition occurs most frequently in the legs and lower abdomen, it can occur anywhere in your body. Deep vein thrombosis is fairly rare, but if you are elderly or overweight, you are particularly susceptible. The disorder also may affect anyone with a blood disease such as polycythemia, and women who are pregnant or those who are taking estrogen, either in the form of birth control pills or as postmenopausal therapy. The condition often develops after long periods of immobility, especially while you recover from an illness. This is because at such times your blood flow has a tendency to become quite sluggish. The area drained by the vein, usually your calf or thigh, becomes swollen and painful as the normal flow of blood is obstructed. This raises the pressure in your veins and capillaries. In your leg this causes edema, or cushion-like swellings that can remain indented if you press them with a finger. If the thrombosis is not in your leg, there may be no symptoms unless pieces of the clot break off, enter the blood, and cause pulmonary embolism. If you think you may have a deep vein thrombosis, see your physician, who will examine you, particularly your heart, lungs and circulation. To locate a deep-vein thrombosis in your leg, the physician may require venography (X-rays taken after a dye is injected into a vein in your foot). Among the tests that may be used in certain cases are ultrasound and radioactive fibrinogen tests. Radioisotope scanning of the lungs is used to check if any blood clots have been carried in the bloodstream to the lungs and caused pulmonary embolism. If you are about to have surgery for any reason and your physician believes you are susceptible to deep vein thrombosis, you may be given injections of a blood thinner (anticoagulant) drug both before and after the operation. If you are bedridden, you will probably be encouraged to flex your leg muscles, wiggle your toes, and bend your ankles to keep your circulation active. If you are immobilized for a long time, your legs also may be mechanically elevated and put in plastic bags, which are alternately filled with air and deflated. The resultant pumping effect keeps your blood flowing normally. If deep vein thrombosis has already occurred, and especially if blood clots have traveled to the lungs, you may be given treatment with fibrinolytic drugs, which dissolve the clots, and with anticoagulants, which prevent the formation of further clots. Because these drugs can cause unwanted bleeding if you use them incorrectly, you must take them exactly as they are prescribed, usually for a period of several weeks. An analgesic prescribed by your physician will help relieve any pain from which you may be suffering. Most clots are gradually reabsorbed into the bloodstream. Sometimes, surgery is necessary to remove blood clots especially if there is a possibility of pulmonary embolism. That's it! Thank you.

Deep Vein Thrombosis and Cancer What are the Risks?
 
04:00
For Advice about Deep Vein Thrombosis, Varicose Veins, Thread Veins and other leg vein problems Tel 01935 873 951 http://theveincarecentre.co.uk/ http://www.theveincarecentre.co.uk/contact info@theveincarecentre.co.uk https://www.facebook.com/theveincarecentre https://www.iwantgreatcare.org/doctors/dr-haroun-gajraj I recently saw a patient from Poole in Dorset who came to see me after a deep vein thrombosis wondering whether he needed any tests. Well he was in his 60s so I had some unpalatable news for him -- as his deep vein thrombosis was unprovoked he should have tests to check that he does not have cancer. So what exactly do I mean by "unprovoked"? Well this is a deep vein thrombosis that comes apparently out of the blue. That means that in the preceding 3 months before the development of the deep vein thrombosis there has been no evidence of major surgery major trauma there has been no immobility so the person has not been bedridden or has spent a significant part of the day either in bed or in a chair the person is not pregnant and the person is not taking hormone replacement therapy or the oral contraceptive pill. Now if a deep vein thrombosis is unprovoked and the person is under 40 then they should have as a bare minimum a full examination a chest x-ray some screening blood tests and their urine should be analysed. Now if the person is over the age of 40 and has an unprovoked deep vein thrombosis then they should be fully investigated for cancer. And that means a mammogram in a woman is and in both men and women a CT scan of the abdomen and pelvis. Now I don't want to cause alarm but approximately 10% of people who have an unprovoked deep-vein thrombosis then find that they have a cancer within the next 12 months. Now they probably had the cancer it's only just become apparent with time. And we know if you diagnose cancer early you get better results. So screening people with an unprovoked deep vein thrombosis gives a really good opportunity to diagnose a cancer at an early stage when it might well be treatable and perhaps be life-saving. So please do not be alarmed but if you have had a deep vein thrombosis which has apparently come out of the blue you ought to see your doctor. If you are over the age of 40 I think now it is probably best that you are referred to a haematologist in a hospital. He is a specialist who can assess your risks and perform the appropriate investigations. Here is the link to the NICE guidance on this matter which came out a year ago and I hope you find it useful. http://publications.nice.org.uk/venous-thromboembolic-diseases-the-management-of-venous-thromboembolic-diseases-and-the-role-of-cg144/guidance I hope you have enjoyed watching this video.

Mayo Clinic News Network Headline 5/29/15

Hi I’m Vivien Williams with a Mayo Clinic News Network Headline. Blood clots and birth control pills. A study in the journal BMJ – the Journal of the British Medical Association suggests most new types of birth control pills are more likely to raise a woman’s risk of blood clots than older formulations. “The study measured the risk of blood clots in veins among women receiving different types of birth control pills, and showed that the later or newer or generation birth control pills actually have a higher risk of blood clots in veins compare to the second generation of birth control pills.” Mayo Clinic Dr. John Heit says the problem is that if a blood clot develops in the leg, there’s a chance it could travel to the lungs, which can be very serious. But even though there is increased risk with these new pills, it is still very low. “If a woman has for example, a family history of venus thrombo embolism or something that makes one more concerned that that woman is at higher risk, then preferable on would use a second generation rather than a third generation, of pills, recognizing the risk for both generations of pills is very low. And that’s today’s Mayo Clinic News Network Headline, I’m Vivien Williams
