#Thrombosis does not discriminate. It affects people of all ages, races and ethnicity, and occurs in all sexes. Contributing to the deaths of 1 in 4 people per year worldwide, we must open our eyes to the risk factors! #WTDay22 #EyesOpenToThrombosis

DYK that #VTE is the leading cause of preventable #hospital death? In fact, up to 60% of all VTE cases occur during or within 90 days of hospitalization. For #WTDay22 we encourage all health systems to implement VTE risk assessment. #EyesOpenToThrombosis

Being in the hospital is THE primary risk factor for developing venous thromboembolism (#VTE). To help prevent hospital-associated thrombosis, every hospital should establish and enforce a VTE protocol and provide risk assessments to every patient. #WTDay22

Patients with cancer are up to 4x more likely to develop a serious #bloodclot than the general population. If you or a loved one is undergoing treatment, talk to your doctor today about your risk. #WTDay22
