Does a history of DVT disqualify you from getting a maritime captain's license?

Does a history of DVT disqualify you from getting a maritime captain's license?

Should not be...: Dvt can be caused by many diseases as well as idiopathic (unkown cause). If u had DVT from, say trauma/surgery, and now perfectly fine and not on med, this should not be a problem. If currently taking blood thinner (coumadin (warfarin) etc..), your employer may restrict you. But being an active marine captain does not increase your risk of dvt. I would look into "requirement/exclusion" criteria. Good luck. ...Read more

Sudden chest pain off and on all day history of DVT and pe have vena cava filter in me for over a year?

See doctor: Chest pain deserves evaluation. You should have had workup for prior dvt/pte: was it provoked or not, and with recurrent dvt, was thrombophilia checked. Vc filter traps large clots, and small clots can sneak by resulting in pe, subsequent chest pain. See your doctor. ...Read more

What are possible causes for transient sharp stabbing groin pain in a female with no history of DVT or this type of pain.?

I would like to get a tattoo indicating I have a history of DVT & PE and am on blood thinners (xarelto). some say it is safe, others say not safe. ???

I would like to get a tattoo indicating I have a history of DVT & PE and am on blood thinners (xarelto). some say it is safe, others say not safe. ???

I think it would: make more sense to buy and wear a medical alert bracelet or necklace. Emergency personnel and health care providers are not trained to look for tattoos but they are trained to look for the bracelets and necklaces. If you really want a tattoo choose something more decorative, it is safe on Xarelto if done in a reputable sterile tattoo shop. You might have a little more bruising that's all. ...Read more

Duplex waveform analysis of the common femoral veins may suggest if there is iliac vein obstruction. b mode component of ultrasound will also show if there are lymph nodes in the groin.
