Deep Vein Thrombosis
First recognised back in 1946, travel related DVT is an added potential problem for 'at risk' travellers who are immobile for extended periods of time. While the problem is often associated with air travel, the risk is equally reported among those travelling by car, coach and train.
What is Travel Related DVT?
A Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) is a clotting of the blood in any of the deep veins - usually in the calf. If a clot develops, it usually makes its presence known by an intense pain in the affected calf. Medical attention should be sought immediately if this occurs, especially after a long journey. In some cases this can be fatal, if the clot breaks off and makes its way to the lungs where it can then affect the lung's ability to take in oxygen. A DVT can occur some days or even weeks after a trip.

Flight-related Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) -Economy Class Syndrome
(posted 7/1/01) ILLNESS: There is increasing evidence that immobilization in airline seats for long flights puts people at risk for deep vein thrombosis (DVT). DVT, blood clots inside veins found deep in extremities or body cavities, is a common disorder. A venous thrombus is a clump of blood cells, platelets, and fibrin (clot) which attaches to the inside walls of veins, can grow in size, and break off to travel downstream from the clot. If the clot stays localized, it can cause swelling and vein irritation. If part of it breaks off, then it can cause blockage downstream, may travel to the lungs (pulmonary embolus) and result in serious illness or even death. In some circumstances, deep vein thrombosis may also contribute to other serious medical problems such as heart attack and stroke. SYMPTOMS: While superficial venous thrombosis usually is accompanied by redness and tenderness along the course of the involved vein, deep venous thrombosis may not be accompanied by any symptoms at all. Symptoms of DVT, if present, usually include swelling of the involved extremity with local tenderness deep within the muscles in the area. If the DVT occurs in veins such as those in the pelvis there may be no symptoms. In these cases the first sign of DVT may be one of the complications mentioned above such as pulmonary embolus. Therefore, preventing DVT is key to saving injuries and lives. Prevention is especially important since DVT during long flights may not allow early medical intervention.

Deep Vein thrombosis (DVT)
What is deep vein thrombosis? Arteries bring oxygen-rich blood from your heart to the rest of your body. Veins return oxygen-poor blood back to your heart. You have three kinds of veins. Superficial veins lie close to your skin, and the deep veins lie in groups of muscles. Perforating veins connect the superficial veins to the deep veins with one-way valves. Deep veins lead to the vena cava, your body's largest vein, which runs directly to your heart. Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a blood clot in one of the deep veins. Usually, DVT occurs in your pelvis, thigh, or calf, but it can also occur less commonly in your arm, chest, or other locations. DVT can cause sudden swelling, pain, or a sensation of warmth. DVT can be dangerous, because it can cause a complication known as pulmonary embolism . In this condition, a blood clot breaks free from your deep veins, travels through your bloodstream, and lodges in your lungs. This clot can block blood flow in your lungs, which can strain your heart and lungs. A pulmonary embolism is a medical emergency. A large embolism can be fatal in a short time.

The perils of travellers' thrombosis
It has been called "economy-class syndrome," but that's a misnomer as even people who fly first-class have been killed by it. A better name is "travellers' thrombosis" though the correct name is "deep-vein thrombosis" or DVT.
It's front-page news because of the death last September of Emma Christoffersen, a 28-year-old Briton who returned to London from Australia where she had attended the Olympic Games. After completing the 19,000-kilometre, 20-hour trip, Christoffersen collapsed at Heathrow airport and died before she reached hospital. She developed a clot in her leg on the Qantas flight, the clot dislodged and made its way to her heart. Estimates of the number of deaths from travellers' thrombosis vary widely. A conservative estimate is about 100 a year, though David Derbyshire, medical writer for

Deep vein thrombosis and air travel
There is community concern that air travel may increase the risk of deep vein thrombosis (DVT). This page explains what DVT is, and provides a set of guidelines for the safety and comfort of air travellers.
There has been growing media and community concern that air travel may increase the risk of deep vein thrombosis (DVT). The Department has recently completed a research project to assess the scale of any such risk. This project was funded by the Department of Transport and Regional Services. A summary of the results is provided at:
Immobility, Travel and DVT
DVT is a common medical condition in the population. The disease process in DVT occurs because of blood clotting, most frequently in the large veins of the calves. Sometimes these clots break free and travel up the veins through the heart to lodge in the arteries of the lungs. This related condition is known as pulmonary embolism (PE), and it may cause sharp chest pain or breathlessness. PE may be life-threatening if the embolus (circulating clot) is large. DVT occurs most frequently among people who are immobilised. For example, the condition has been long recognised as a risk for people confined to bed. Immobility for even short periods can cause DVT. For this reason, preventive measures are frequently taken when people, particularly the elderly, undergo surgical operations, where they are immobilised by a general anaesthetic.

Go United Kingdom Traveller's thrombosis (DVT)
Clotting of blood, usually occurring in the lower legs, is known as deep venous thrombosis (DVT). This has become known in the press as "economy class syndrome" but the term is misleading. Individuals seated in cars, buses and trains may all be at risk, and cases of DVT occurring in flight have been reported in travellers in premium cabins as well as economy. The term 'traveller's thrombosis' is much more accurate.
Risk factors Signs and symptoms Advice
Reduced blood flow may lead to DVT. Although most of the scientific research relates to hospital patients during the period immediately after surgery, it is clear that prolonged immobility can often be a key factor in the development of a blood clot. Specific studies examining traveller's thrombosis have looked particularly at how many DVT sufferers have travelled in the weeks preceding their diagnosis.
It is clear from the studies of which we are aware, that there is indeed an association between long journeys and the occurrence of DVT. However, thromboses can occur after car, bus, rail or air travel and there is no conclusive evidence that flying in itself is a specific risk factor. In addition, at least 75% of DVTs in these studies occurred in passengers who already had at least one of the risk factors listed as follows.
