Recognising a Clot - Nursing Signs and Symptoms

Blood clots are a serious, potentially life-threatening clinical condition that must be immediately recognised and assessed if patient outcomes are to be satisfactory. Although there is a widespread awareness of the risk that blood clots may develop, this may not translate to being familiar with their exact signs and symptoms. This session will go back to basics to help you understand how to perform a detailed assessment for DVT and PE so that you can immediately recognise if should they develop.
