Abstract: Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE) are examples of Venous thromboembolism (VTE). DVT is a blood clot that occurs in the deep veins in the body such as in the lower leg, thighs, arms or pelvis; however, it can also develop in the arms (CDC, 2020). While DVT and PE are predominantly dangerous and are often underdiagnosed medical conditions, they are treatable and preventable conditions (CDC, 2020). These conditions can lead to dangerous diseases, multi-organ failure, and in some instances death; however, they can be treated and prevented if diagnosed early (CDC, 2020). The incidence rate of PE/DVT in the United States, as well as the number of affected people with PE/DVT is unknown, although 900,000 people can be affected by 1 to 2 per 1000 people annually
