We explore the experience, causes, diagnosis and treatment of blood clots....... and dueling sausages!

Show Notes

Blood clots are an often difficult to diagnose condition that can be fatal. In this episode we hear from a patient who had a DVT, explore the causes, diagnosis and treatment for blood clots and the importance of recognizing the symptoms of a blood clot.
 We also explore a rather odd episode in medical history...... The sausage duel of 1865.....
 For more information about clots please check out website of the charity Thrombosis UK:

We thank our patient Nick for his contribution, Christian for trying to teach me how to pronounce Virchow and of course as ever Drew Worthley for his fabulous music

What is The Doctor Family?

We host a family medicine podcast discussing health issues affecting every family. We are a married couple of family doctors practicing in the UK. We will give what we feel is a more accurate and balanced coverage of the health and medicine issues in the news and explain these issues in plain English!

We also work to debunk health myths we come across in the media and online. Join us on our journey
