Description

Complications from Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) kill more people in the United States per year than AIDS and breast cancer combined.

A client with this potentially life-threatening condition rarely knows or reports to their therapist that they have DVT. What is more likely to happen is that a client visits a massage therapist hoping he or she can "work out" the intense pain in their leg.

In this course, massage therapists will learn how to recognize the symptoms and risk factors associated with deep vein thrombosis and to distinguish a muscular problem from a much more dangerous scenario.

Course Objectives

  • Define and describe the symptoms associated with the pathology of DVT.
  • Recognize, evaluate and rate the risk factors for developing DVT and create an appropriate massage protocol or other response for addressing those clients with DVT.
  • Demonstrate the use for the Thrombosis Risk Assessment for determining level of risk for DVT.
  • Discover the possible complications of DVT and what other conditions may be confused with DVT; discriminate between referring a client out or for emergency services
  • Review the allopathic diagnosis and treatment options for DVT.
  • Discuss preventative measures for DVT and disseminate educational information to their clients about DVT.

I've used the Institute for my CE information and test credentials for a long time. They have a good variety of subjects that are interesting and informative for massage therapy. I like the improved website and testing as well.
