DVT Chart

DVT Dashboard
What is it?
A venous thromboembolism is a blood clot that starts in a vein. VTE is the third leading vascular diagnosis after heart attack and stroke. The following are the two types of VTEs.
  • Deep vein thrombosis: A clot in a deep vein, usually in the leg, but sometimes in the arm or other veins.
  • Pulmonary embolism: PEs occur when a DVT clot breaks free from a vein wall and travels to the lungs, blocking some or all of the blood supply.
How's it measured?
The rate is per 1,000 discharges.
