Hello I am Davey-T™ and I am a blood clot, you will find me in the deep veins of the leg (DVT) including calf, thigh and pelvis. You may find me in your arm but mostly I am preventable.
My mission is quite simple, I break off from Davey-T™ and then I travel around your veins and I am looking to block your blood vessels in your lung - they call me the silent killer
This site is dedicated to Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) Prevention which are in most cases preventable, however the consequences of a Pulmonary Embolism (PE) may be fatal!
Searching for DVT in an internet search engine will bring countless sites containing clinical and research data and information for clinicians. This site is aimed purely at giving information to inform you of what a DVT is and how to help prevent them and lower your risk of death in relation to a DVT.
ATTENTION THIS IS NOT meant to be a site for diagnosis or treatment that is between you and your Doctor/Clinician as you are all individuals and need to be looked at as a whole, not in isolation.
The site is based on three main cartoon characters The Goody - Clot Stopper™ wants to help you prevent a DVT whilst the Baddy Davey-T™ and his side kick aPE™ are out to create havoc. Although the content is not what you normally associate with medical conditions please note the mission is simple.
DVT PREVENTION AND REDUCTION OF PULMONARY EMBOLUS CASES SO #DONTBEACLOT
Every Baddy deserves a goody! So meet Ed (Embolic Deterrent) - The medical term for a clot is an embolus - his alias is Clot Stopper.
My mission is simply to inform you of the dangers and risks of a DVT and to help you prevent them but I need your help to try to reduce the risks of meeting Davey-T™
Davey-T™ and his friends are highly preventable so remember to follow my mantra and do this at least every hour:
