Immobilisation not the only trigger for DVT during long-distance air travel

...after air travel; with a greater risk after longer flights than after shorter ones. The mechanism of clot formation during air travel, however, is unclear. Scientists think immobilisation for long periods could play a part, but flight-specific factors may also contribute. To investigate, Frits Rosendaal (Lei...

Wearing compression stockings reduces risk of DVT on long-haul flights

Air travel and pandemic flu

Once a major outbreak was under way, banning flights from affected cities would be effective at significantly delaying worldwide spread only if almost all travel between cities could be stopped almost as soon as an outbreak was detected in each city. It would be more effective to take other measures th...
