Doubt cast over DVT flying risk
Reduced air pressure and oxygen levels on planes do not increase the risk of blood clots in the legs, a study says.
Previous research has suggested air passengers are at an increased risk of DVT because of the unique conditions.
But Leicester and Aberdeen university researchers said sitting for long periods was the main cause, and warned people about all forms of travel.
The study of 73 people was featured in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
One in 2,000 long-distance passengers will suffer a blood clot, which can be fatal if it reaches the lungs.
“The sensible conclusion would be to accept that there is still some risk for certain people to fly. My advice to everyone would be to do regular exercises during travel. Dr David Keeling, DVT expert.

News Inbrief - DVT cover
A British insurance company has claimed to be the first to offer cover against Deep-Vein Thrombosis (DVT). The move follows an increase among air travellers suffering from blood clots. P J Hayman, an online insurance provider, offers emergency medical assistance cover for travellers contracting DVT and £10,000 should death occur during the trip or within 72 hours of the policyholder’s arriving home. Peter Hyman said the new policy will ensure families are able to cope financially in the immediate aftermath should a member contract DVT. See www.247travelinsurance.co.uk
