Is a blood transfusion required?
Infrequently. If needed, it’s usually given after surgery to promote healing.
What is thrombophlebitis and is it preventable?
Thrombophlebitis, also called deep venous thrombosis (DVT) is undesired blood clotting in veins, especially of the calf and pelvis, due to prolonged ambulation. It can cause a condition called pulmonary embolism (PE) if pieces of the clot break off from the calf and get impacted in the lung. Preventive measures will be taken.
