2.2.9 Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE)

While deep vein thrombosis may lead to an acute pulmonary embolus, there is little evidence that such an event causes crashes. Therefore, no standard applies for either DVT or PE, although non-driving periods are advised (refer to Table 5). If long-term anticoagulation treatment is prescribed, the standard for anticoagulant therapy should be applied (refer to section 2.2.8 Long-term anticoagulant therapy).
