Prevention of phlebitis

Print Article

Prevention of phlebitis

Following an accident, he was prescribed a preventive treatment for phlebitis and circulatory disorders. Phlebitis is a blood clot that forms in a vein in the leg, favored by the trauma, immobilization, and other factors such as drugs, for example. Risk is the migration of the clot to the lung (pulmonary embolism).

It is important to note the current medications (especially birth control pills or hormone therapy) and specify if you smoke. Dde many drug incompatibilities exist with this treatment, in particular, the simple aspirin should not be taken simultaneously. If you have trouble, do not take the medication prescribed by the doctor. If in doubt ask your doctor or pharmacist.

This treatment should be done at regular hours necks subcutaneous injections. A small hematoma at the injection site is not abnormal. It requires biological monitoring by blood test, the results should be interpreted by your physician.

Treatment is continued until resumption of normal physical activity. It must in no case be interrupted without reasoned medical opinion. The injections may optionally be replaced by a treatment in the form of tablets.

Remember to tell your doctor about any abnormal and unusual pain in the immobilized member (feeling of warmth, tension or cramps), any chest pain, sensations of shortness of breath and even anxiety.
