During long flights, the risk of developing deep vein thrombosis (DVT) can increase due to prolonged inactivity. To reduce this risk, it's important to keep our legs and feet moving as much as possible. Simple exercises like flexing our ankles, rotating our feet, and walking around the cabin can help maintain proper blood flow. Additionally, staying hydrated and wearing compression stockings can also aid in preventing DVT. Lastly, avoid crossing our legs and try to elevate them whenever possible to further promote circulation.
