Info on Blood clots

Info on Blood clots
After a clot has done its job, your body breaks it down. The fibers dissolve, and the cells are absorbed back into your bloodstream. Usually it takes several weeks, but it could be months or longer. Any leftover clot will become scar tissue.
Pregnant women's bodies form blood clots more easily. That protects them from bleeding problems during childbirth until a few months afterward. But it also means their blood is more likely to clot in the veins of their legs and pelvis.
When your tissue is damaged, a chemical gets released into your bloodstream, and it acts as a distress call to start the process. Cells called platelets rush to the scene.
Rough edges of the blood vessel wall help them stick together and form a plug, filling in small tears and sending out more chemical triggers. Then, proteins called "clotting factors" finish the job, trapping blood cells in a mesh-like net.

Aspirin is an everyday remedy for aches and pains is also an anti-platelet drug. It keeps your body from making thromboxane, the chemical that tells your platelets to form a clot

These drugs don't actually make your blood thinner; they make it harder to form clots. That's a good thing if you're at risk for clots that could slow or block the flow inside your blood vessels.

Common medications like warfarin (Coumadin) and heparin affect different steps of the process than newer ones like apixaban (Eliquis), dabigatran (Pradaxa), edoxaban (Lixiana, Savaysa), and rivaroxaban (Xarelto).

When you settle into a small space for a while, like on a plane or in a car, you can develop a clot called a DVT (deep vein thrombosis). It's very unlikely you'll get one, but if you do, it could become deadly.
Lower your chances of trouble by drinking lots of water. Stand up and move around every hour or two. Or at least change your sitting position and flex your feet. Don't cross your legs -- that cuts off blood supply. more  

Wonderful service that you have selected, Brij ji. Hope you will be able to save several patients. more  
Thanks Durga Prasad ji and Ramesh ji. Yesterday, I attended the training program for stroke victim handling at Fortis Hospital Gurgaon and has registered myself as a Volunteer to help stroke victims whenever found in my area. After completion of training, I have been awarded with a certificate also by Fortis Hospital. For stroke victims, timely care by a specialist is very important within the period called Golden hour. If medical help is provided within this golden hour period, 87% of the cases can recover fully without any disability. Therefore, it is very important for us to first identify if this is a case of stroke and then transport the patient in proper way to the nearest hospital who are equipped to give clot dissolving injections. Let us please spread this awareness among the residents where ever we are living. more  
Blood clots could become life threatening if blood supply to vital organs of the body is blocked or could immobilise the body if the blood supply to brain is blocked etc. Homeopathy offers medicines like Arnica, Staphisagria or Acid Sulfuric etc to help the body to dissolve the clots and prevent formation of clots in the system. However, the medicines should be taken under expert care and followup. more
