Consider This When You Run !
Sail Away ... Sail Away !
When you run folks, make sure you consider the following from Insider, by VRP; June 2012, written by Alicia Potee.
Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a combination of two conditions: deep vein thrombosis (DVT), in which a clot forms and blocks off a deep vein (commonly in the legs), and pulmonary embolism (PE), in which the same clot breaks off and travels to your lung. Planes, trains and automobiles all carry this particular health hazard in common—and if you're traveling long distances by air, rail or car this summer, it's a risk you should be especially wary of.
Needless to say, VTE is life-threatening. And, unfortunately, studies show that travel times longer than four hours can double—even triple—your risk of VTE during the first week following your trip, and for up to two months after.16 What's more, every two-hour increase in
travel time boosts the threat by 18 percent, whether you're setting off by car, bus, train or plane. (Research suggests that air travelers are particularly vulnerable to VTE—and if you're male, over 40, obese, pregnant, using hormone replacement or an oral contraceptive, sit in your office for two hours or more without getting up or if you've recently had major surgery, that risk is even higher.)
The single most effective strategy to avoid VTE is to get up and move your legs at regular intervals during your trip. If you're flying by plane, walk around the cabin when you're cleared to leave your seat—if you're driving, make use of rest stops to get up and stretch out.
You should also avoid constrictive clothing around your waist, and be sure to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water and avoiding caffeinated drinks and alcohol. Stretch out and flex your calf muscles when you aren't able to stand and walk around. And consider putting on a pair of compression stockings before you leave—research shows that these therapeutic socks can reduce risk of asymptomatic DVT significantly.
Most important, though, is recognizing the signs of trouble so that you can get help fast when you need it. If you experience warmth, redness, swelling, pain or tenderness in your legs—especially if it's accompanied by shortness of breath, dizziness, anxiety or fainting—you should seek medical attention immediately.
Dr. "B" told us about coagulopathies recently. You do not want to form a clot because of too little water drinking! He further recommends one running in their vehicles, stop every two or three hours; get out of the vehicle and do some deep knee bends; then, walk around; then, do some more deep knee bends. Hold onto something if you have to, but, you want the exercise to cause the muscles to contract and push the blood back up to the heart. This facilitates heart action without excess exertion on the heart muscle.
"Furthermore," he cautions, "it would not be a bad idea to take an 81 mg aspirin once every three hours of sitting up to 4 equalling one regular strength aspirin. Or, just take an regular aspirin an hour into your run."
This advice is proffered because many will have extra gasoline they will be carrying and not stop until they have to refil. Remember, you will be running and not wanting to stop due to gangs, no gasoline at the pumps, and numerous other problems having occurred and developing.
