The American Blood Clot Association is fighting every day to educate people on the signs and symptoms of blood clots.
We must significantly reduce the number of deaths and stroke related to blood clots.
Currently in the United States there is a low awareness level concerning the dangers of deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism...ABCA is going to change that!
Some stats to think about:
Upwards of 2 Million Americans each year are affected by DVT (Blood clots in the legs)
- Approximately 300,000 Americans die each year from blood clots that travel from the leg (DVT) to the lungs (Pulmonary Embolism).
- The number of deaths from blood clots is more than breast cancer and AIDS combined.
- What is the leading cause of preventable hospital deaths in the United States? Blood Clots
- What is the leading cause of maternal death in America? Blood Clots
33% of people diagnosed with a pulmonary embolism(a blood clot that travels to the lungs) will die.
Don't become another statistic. Know The Signs. Know The Symptoms.
