Throm­bo­sis road­show in old gaol

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - NEWS -

A ‘Stop the Clot’ Throm­bo­sis preven­tion aware­ness road­show vis­its Wick­low Gaol carpark this Thurs­day.

Blood clots af­fect many peo­ple from all walks of life and peo­ple of all ages. Any­one can be af­fected by blood clots as they do not dis­crim­i­nate.

Trag­i­cally, too many lives are af­fected by blood clots, and too many lives are lost be­cause aware­ness about life-threat­en­ing blood clots is so low. Stud­ies show that fewer than one in four peo­ple have any recog­ni­tion of blood clots or their signs and symp­toms.

The road­show will visit Wick­low town from 9 a.m. to 12.15 p.m. and aim to teach peo­ple to recog­nise the signs and symp­toms, in­for­ma­tion which could save lives and pre­vent the dev­as­tat­ing dam­age.
