Yesterday, celebrity gossip website TMZ.com reported that legendary rap artist Heavy D died from a blood clot in the lung (Pulmonary embolus or PE) that was caused by Deep leg vein thrombosis. That terminology is incorrect since deep vein thrombosis can occur anywhere in the body, not just the legs. The correct term is Deep Vein Thrombosis or DVT.

DVT has been in the news lately because several high profile figures have been diagnosed with it, or died recently, including Heavy D and reality TV star Tamar Braxton’s husband, Vince Hebert, who survived his bout with DVT and PE.

Pulmonary embolism is usually fatal and involves a blood clot (thrombus) traveling from the legs or arms and into the lungs (PE). People at high risk for DVTs are those who live a sedentary lifestyle (couch potatoes), sit for long periods of time at cubicle desks or travel long distances on planes.

Pulmonary embolisms are often misdiagnosed as something else — such as pneumonia or cardiac arrest. There are law firms that base their entire practice around misdiagnosed pulmonary embolism cases.

Anyone can be diagnosed with deep vein thrombosis. Other risk factors that predispose people to DVTs, include pregnancy, obesity, dehydration, crushing injuries, or people with strokes or heart conditions.

Patients with DVTs or PE are usually young (in their 30s and 40s), and otherwise healthy and athletic. You are at higher risk for a DVT or PE if you sit for long periods of time without stretching your legs or walking, regardless of your health status.

A deep vein thrombosis occurs when the blood in the veins begins to clot due to an obstruction. A clot then breaks off in the leg or arm and travels through the venous network to the heart where it is pumped into the lungs causing an obstruction in a pulmonary artery that could lead to sudden death.

Deep vein thrombosis occurs in the veins because the blood in your veins is not under as much pressure as the blood in your arteries. Venous blood is depleted of oxygen and makes the slow return trip to your heart and lungs where it picks up more oxygen. Because it is not under as much pressure as your arteries, venous blood is easier to clot if it is obstructed, such as when sitting.

There are two places where the venous blood can easily be obstructed when you sit: your lower legs (below your knees) and your thighs where they meet your groin. Your sitting position causes your blood to slow down in those areas. If you are obese, your blood slows down even more, causing clots.

The reason people don’t usually drop dead right away on planes is because the blood clot is still attached to the inside wall of your vein in your leg (or arm) where it begins to irritate your vein.

Sufferers report feeling a dull ache or sharp pain in the back of their legs or arms. The area may also swell, turn red or a ruddy color, and feel hot (or cold) to the touch. You might also have a positive Homan’s sign.

When you stand up and walk around, your venous blood flow starts moving normally again and the clot loosens and breaks off to make the slow trip to your heart and lungs.

Signs and symptoms of DVT (signs are what you see and symptoms are what you feel):

  • Swelling in one or both legs
  • Pain or tenderness in one or both legs, which may occur only while standing or walking
  • Warmth in the skin of the affected leg
  • Red or discolored skin in the affected leg
  • Visible surface veins
  • Leg fatigue
  • If you have any of the above signs and symptoms, it is important that you get to a doctor or emergency room right away! If you are athletic, do not assume that the signs & symptoms are just muscle pain.

    The best way to avoid getting DVTs, which can lead to Pulmonary emboli, is to get up and move around at least every 2 hours while you’re at your desk or on a plane.

    Also drink lots of water. The air on planes is much dryer than on the ground, and dry air increases dehydration in the body.

    Dehydration causes your blood to thicken and clot easier. Doctors suggest that you drink 2 liters of water per day (or 8 cups of water) to prevent dehydration. You should drink more if you are very active. The average person loses 1.5 liters of water per day in urine. An additional liter is lost just by breathing, sweating, talking or coughing per day. Food accounts for 20% of our daily water intake.

    Treatment for DVT includes medications, such as blood thinners (Coumadin or Heparin, etc). Some doctors may prescribe Aspirin once a day since aspirin contains a blood thinner. Doctors might also insert an IVF (inferior vena cava filter) to trap blood clots before they reach the heart and lungs. You may also be advised to wear compression stockings to decrease the swelling in your legs.

    This has been your medical minute.

      Here’s some tea spilled on Chrissy from Love and Hip Hop
      “Chrissy has been hustling since she was 15 years old. She’s now 42, and she’s been using her p*ssy to get Gucci and gold.

      Chrissy and her crew were involved in different crimes like credit card schemes, shoplifters, mules from NYC to D.C. They were setting up dudes to get robbed. Chrissy has dated dope boys like the infamous drug kingpin Alpo Martinez and his partner Rich Porter also three New York Knick players. She even slept with Jay Z when he was 23 years old.
      Chrissy’s last trick/sponsor/boyfriend cheated on her with a popular video hoe. Chrissy decided to rob him for $32,000 then she ran to Miami to shop and have fun on his dime. Then dude and his crew tracked
      Chrissy down. The Nicca knocked out her front teeth and in return Chrissy had her peeps send him a message that if he does not pay for her dental bill and buy her breast implants he’s going to get hit with the Rico Act. Dude paid all Chrissy’s bills and that was the end of her and street dudes.

      Chrissy took her skills to reality television hoping her broke rapper boyfriend will help her to continue to live a easy lifestyle.”

      Everybody already knows that Jim Jones fiance Chrissy had a shady x-rated past and guess what? Reality shows are using women like Chrissy to mislead our young teenage girls. Don’t believe me? Ask Kim Kardashian.

      Since I can’t really work out until April/May, my goal is to do a 5K and just be healthy. I saw this P.I.N.K. program I may try, but my my main goal is to totally eliminate processed food from my family’s diet and to only eat at local restaurants who support the eat local, but local campaign. More expensive, but since I am not eating out that much anymore it will all balance out.

      In the past year I have eliminated a great deal of processed foods from our diet. I make meal plans, grocery lists with only things on the meal plans (save room for misc. like lunch items), constantly looking up recipes. Everything you like that comes in a packaged box you can make yourself. Small tip: Make a BIG batch of rice, freeze it in small zip lock bags and Viola! you have your own Minute Rice.

      FeFe- Hopefully the engagement won’t be as long as the courtship.

      I have said in the past, marriage is not for everyone, but if one person wants to get married and the other doesn’t, then a serious conversation needs to happen. Just like with children, if a man says over and over he don’t want kids, poking holes in a condom not gone make him stay. Chrissy FORCED that man to propose. He obviously loves her being they don’t have kids and he keeps her laced. Seeing his crazy family is enough for me to run for the hills and never look back.

      Did anyone else find it shady that Olivia’s crybaby manager had a meeting with Yandi about not knowing what to do with her? Olivia always needs her ego rubbed.

      Erica told TMZ that she tried to get the champagne glass throwing, hair pulling, face slashing fight scene pulled because it doesn’t put her “image” in a good light.

      …The 24-year-old tells us, she was completely misrepresented in the episode — blaming show editors for unfairly portraying her as the bad guy … and Kimbella as an angel.

      Erica tells us, “My whole image in my career is now affected by this. I wanted them to pull this clip because I don’t want to show this side of me.”

    • flsun99

      So that is what Kimbella was referring to when and Chrissy said her past could be a book and Kimbella’s could be a porn movie. I think that’s what she said. They yell so freaking much its hard to understand everyone.
