#seekHELP

RBR active™ is embarking on an ambitious campaign raising awareness of the main signs of DVT

#seekHELP

The myth of “you get a DVT if you fly” is just that, a myth. There are many reasons and environments where the threat of developing a DVT are heightened.

The campaign aims to highlight that everyone regardless of age, gender, fitness levels, profession or geography is at risk of developing a blood clot. The campaign #seekHELP is built around making people aware of the key symptoms of a DVT.

There are 4 key signs to be aware of.

Heat

Excessive redness

Localised swelling

Pain

The #seekHELP campaign is being launched on social media, on seekhelp.co.uk, through local, national and international press, industry press, television, radio and through industry and health blogs.

Awareness and prevention will save lives from being lost because of Thrombosis. The campaign also highlights the fact that 80% of the time, not all 4 key signs are present, but this doesn’t mean that a DVT isn’t present.
