Blood thinners are medicines that help blood flow smoothly through your veins and arteries. They also keep blood clots from forming or getting bigger. They’re used to treat some types of heart disease and heart defects, and other conditions that could raise your risk of getting dangerous clots. They can protect against heart attacks and strokes. And while, the lifesaving benefits of these drugs often outweigh the potential dangers, there are risks.
To learn more about blood thinners, join fellowship-trained cardiologist, Dr. Rakesh Vohra for February’s Health Night on the Town program. Health Night will take place on Tuesday, February 27 at 7 p.m. in the Ridge Conference Room of Methodist Medical Center located at 990 Oak Ridge Turnpike.
This program is part of Methodist Medical Center’s continuing Health Night on the Town series. Programs are free of charge and open to the public. For more information, call (865) 835-4662.
