Case of thrombosis on the Iss: it will act the specialist at a distance
The first case of thrombosis on board the Space Station (Iss) for which the medical intervention is done through a consultation in telemedicine that has involved for the first time, a specialist outside Nasa. Happened long ago and made known only now, it has been required for a deep vein thrombosis in the jugular of an astronaut, whose identity is protected for reasons of privacy. The astronaut is aware of thrombosis, for case, as took place on himself as a test on the circulation of the blood in microgravity conditions.

The doctor's consultation, details of which are published in the New England Journal of Medicine, was conducted by dr. Stephan Moll , School of Medicine, american University of North Carolina. "My first reaction, he explained, Moll - was ask if I could visit the Space Station to examine the patient. Nasa - has added the expert - I have, however, responded that they could not take me in the space quickly, so I visited at a distance".

Moll explains that "the protocol for the treatment of deep vein thrombosis includes the use of blood thinners for three months, to prevent - clarifies - that the clot grows and reduce the damage that might cause in other parts of the body, such as the lungs. The risk, however - he added - is that, in the case of injury, there is an internal hemorrhage is difficult to stop".

at The end, considering the poor stock of medicines on board, the choice fell on a bulk to be injected for 40 days, awaiting the arrival of the ship with the supplies of the drugs in the pills. The astronaut was also followed in the use of ultrasound to monitor the progress of the therapy. "We stayed in touch via email and phone. It was weird - jokes Moll - to think that I had less difficulty communicating with the space with my family in Europe".
