KEEP LIFE FLOWING
Blood is life and what keeps and maintains life is the flow of blood in our veins that enable oxygen and nutrients to be transported to all tissues and organs of the body. Whatever compromises this flow of blood amounts to devasting and fatal consequences. Thrombosis is one pathological condition that can result to vascular occlusion with the resultant consequence of death.
