Leaflet - ECS Exercise and Symptoms

When you're flying you won't be able to remember all the details about avoiding DVT, recognizing symptoms, and avoiding misdiagnosis. A few days after the flight, when strange symptoms appear, it might be hard to remember what you are supposed to watch for or how to avoid misdiagnosis. So we want you to have a wallet size reminder card. This card addresses venous clots, DVT and PE. Arterial clotting is also serious but you don't need a reminder card if you're having a heart attack or a stroke.

This page provides links to pages you can print at home, cut out with scissors, fold on the line, and put in your wallet. Carry it with you when you travel by air. Make extras to give to others.

To view and print the wallet-size leaflet, you need Adobe Acrobat Reader (free copy below). When you see the pdf file on your screen, it will look too small to read. Don't worry; it is much easier to read when it prints out.
