The world is opening back up to long haul travel and we couldn’t be more excited. However, it is important to remember the risks associated and to take the necessary precautions. 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 900,000 people are affected by blood clots each year, the most common type of blood clot is called deep vein thrombosis. This occurs when there is a clot that forms within the deep veins of the body typically located in the legs, thighs or pelvis.

Sitting for long periods of time slows blood flow in the veins of the legs and increases a person’s risk of developing DVT.

Most people who develop a DVT during travel have some of these risk factors:

  • A previous blood clot
  • Family history of blood clots
  • A clotting disorder
  • A recent surgery, hospitalization or injury
  • The use of birth control containing estrogen
  • Receiving hormone replacement therapy
  • Current or recent pregnancy
  • Older age 

Fortunately, compression stockings in flight can help reduce swelling in the legs and improve blood circulation.

If you are travelling and concerned about the risk, consider compression socks.
