#PreventThrombosis

About World Thrombosis Day 2021

Our campaign on World Thrombosis Day, seeks to spread awareness about thrombosis and reducing its incidences by taking appropriate preventive measures. Thrombosis, if not recognized, it can lead to morbidity and mortality due to venous thromboembolism (VTE) and atrial fibrillation (AFib). Thrombosis is often overlooked and misunderstood. It is important to understand the risk factors, foresee any signs and take immediate action to reduce death and disability due to this condition. Thus, among the healthcare professionals, there is a need to ‘Open your eyes to Thrombosis’.

Healthcare providers should also educate their patients about the risk factors, signs and symptoms and preventive measures. They must empower individuals to seek immediate medical attention if they have signs and symptoms.
