Developing a blood clot in a blood vessel is a severe, potentially fatal, medical condition. Deep capillary thrombosis is a blood clot that develops within a deep vein in the body, usually in the leg. A blood embolism in a capillary is referred to as venous thrombosis. Symptoms of an embolism can include: cramping pain, redness, warmth, or swelling in one of your legs, these are symptoms of DVT; shortness of breath, upper body pain, fainting or coughing up blood, these are symptoms of a pulmonary blood clot. If you develop symptoms of an embolism, see your GP or most likely to your nearby emergency situation department as soon as possible. Most blood clots develop throughout or following a remain in medical facility. There are things you and the physician caring for you can do previously, during and after a medical facility remain to minimise your risk of developing an embolism. You can help yourself prior to entering hospital by: trying to lose any excess weight; maintaining as mobile as you can; chatting to your medical professional if you take HRT or the combined birth control pill, you may need to stop them a couple of weeks prior to your operation. While you're in hospital, you will reduce your possibilities of an embolism if you: drink plenty of fluids to keep hydrated; wear your compression stockings night and day; put on any other compression tools you've been provided; take any blood-thinning medications you've been offered; stand up and move around as quickly as you're encouraged to. You might be offered compression stockings to wear till you are totally mobile.
