ArjoHuntleigh is participating in the First-Ever World Thrombosis Day!

October 13th, 2014 marks the first-ever World Thrombosis Day, which will be kicked off globally to raise awareness and provide education about thrombosis and venous thromboembolism.

The date was selected because it is the birthday of Rudolf Virchow, the pioneer in the pathophysiology of thrombosis.

It was this German physician and pathologist who first developed the concept of “thrombosis” and made crucial advances in our understanding of this often mis- or undiagnosed condition through the concept of pathological processes.
