***Breaking*** Hilary Clinton admitted to hospital; blood clot

She died within hours of her injury (she refused treatment). Hillary has been under medical supervision during her illness/injury, so hopefully her doctors caught it in time before it can do any serious harm.

R4, Hillary does not have a blood clot in her brain.

She is being treating with anti-coagulatns and anti-coagulants are not used in blood clots on the brain.

Anti-coagulants are used when there is a blood clot elsewhere in the body.

She could have a blood clot from atrial fibrillation. Atrial fibrillation is what caused Bush Sr to puke and pass out in China. A fib is associated with blood clots because the atrium is not pushing steadily enough to get all the blood into the ventricle, so some blood pools in the atrium and it becomes sluggish. Sluggish blood can clot. A clot can then break off and travel to another part of the body.

Hills is just a few years older than my mother and mom's flying lead to development of DVT - deep vein thrombosis. She had blood clots break loose and travel from her legs to her lungs, which put her in the hospital twice. She's okay now but it helps greatly that she's no longer a CPA and is like clockwork in taking Coumadin and exercising more.

r47 That's what I was thinking, but they didn't specify if her condition worsened since the original fainting spell or since being re-admitted. This was the second report they did on Hilary today; the first being the breaking news about an hour ago re. her being hospitalized. They didn't use the "turn for the worse" then. Typical shoddiness that passes for "reporting" these days, I guess.

R82: Listen toots, they usually tell you what the condition or diagnosis means and what the likely outcome is and in this case, they haven't. At Hillary's age and given that she's not exactly the picture of health and given her body type, doctors should have recognized that she was at risk for a blood clot, especially if she was told to stay home and take it easy (probably though the doctors wanted her in a hospital and she decided against it). This is why people in hospitals get those special socks that blow up and circulate the blood in the legs. Why didn't Hillary have this brought into her house?? I just think that something is going on. Even Sanjay Goopta just said things are very vague.

by Anonymousreply 9512/30/2012

She obviously had symptoms like headaches, vlurred vision, balance issues, and when the docs were checking her out they found the clot. Not uncommon after a concussion.

They do have to monitor you closely when they first put you on anticoagulants. She will probably have to have physical therapy, a special diet, and an exercise regimen similar to what they do with cardiac patients.

She probably won't let them keep her too long in the hospital, but I would say maybe a week to ten days. When she goes home she will go with a full compliment of PT, nurse, trainer, and physician.

I know they have a house in D.C. & the house in Chappaqua, but do they have an apartment in Manhattan? That would be the easiest.

The problem with Richardson had as much to do with the lack of proper diagnosis as the extent of the injury. And her situation was caused by bleeding, not by blood clot(s).

The treatment she is now receiving should do the trick, unless some serious issues are involved. They obviously aren't, as seen by her schedule and vitality before her fall.

With the Clintons, I never completely trust news, because they are by now masters of manipulating the story the way they want it. However, it does not appear that anything is occurring here other than what is being reported.

Calm down everyone there's a likely reason they're not publicizing everything here. They're not going to release every detail of her diagnosis and prognosis as they usually would for a celeb or person of her standing due to the fact that she might be running in '16 and they're being extra careful what they put out there about her health. It could be twisted by opponents as evidence of her unsuitability to run or serve.

They won't release more details until they know exactly what's up and when she'll be released, and even then after careful wording/vetting by her pr team. There's a lot at stake here.

A neurologist on Daily Kos looks at what's been reported and revised his diary once he learned of the treatment given.

[quote]I wrote the diary prior to learning that Secretary Clinton is now on anticoagulation. Anticoagulation for subdural hematoma treatment is rather unusual. If the clot is intracranial, then perhaps the anticoagulation is related to something like a dural venous sinus thrombosis or a cerebral venous thrombosis - two entities where anticoagulation is the standard of care. Another possibility is that due to her sedentary nature over the past few weeks following her illness and concussion - she developed a clot elsewhere in her body - i.e. in her leg (known as a deep vein thrombosis - DVT) which also requires treatment with anticoagulant agents.

DVT is what kills people on long airplane flights when they don't get up and walk around.

A venous thrombosis is a form of stroke.

R143, the 22nd Amendment to the Constitution became law in 1951 because of FDR's four terms. It limits a President to a maximum of ten years in office.

A Vice President who becomes President upon the death of the previous President can only run for two terms of his own if the previous President died during the last two years of his term. If a President dies during the first two years of his term, his Vice President-turned-President can only run for one full term of his own.

They said "a blood clot" so it is one, and likely directly related to the concussion. My guess is she had symptoms that wouldn't go away like a headache or blurred vision and they checked and found it.

I wonder why they didn't find it when she first fell? Of course maye she refused to go to the hospital. See? When you are told you should go to the hospital to be checked, do it!

[quote] and how blood clots in the leg or other similar body parts are not serious,

This is really, really wrong.

A blood clot in your leg can kill or cripple you. Parts of it can break off and travel to other parts of the body and kill you, which is what happened to David Bloom.

I have a relative who is in constant pain and walks (not very well) with a cane due to a blood clot in his leg. He had to have a spinal cord stimulator implanted for the pain.

Blood clots in the leg are serious. They are not immediately life-threatening but must be treated ASAP so the clot doesn't travel (become an embolus instead of a thrombus) or extend ((causing permanent leg damage).

Depending on how large the clot is, they may place a greenfield filter in her inferior vena cava to prevent pieces of the clot from reaching the lung. She may be placed on anti coagulation therapy for life, which isn't fun.

Hillary's blood clot was found and caught in time.

David Bloom's (NBC reporter) was scrunched up in a tank for long periods and his leg blood clot was not found nor caught in time.

Sanjy Gupta on CNN explained that leg blood clots are pretty run of the mill if found and caught in time, unlike blood clots near the brain or in the brain or lung.

[quote] so your frenzy and worry about her demise is uncalled for

Frenzied? I'm merely a healthy professional of 25 years saying that yes, blood clots are a serious health problem. They're not varicose veins, they're not muscle sprains. To repeatedly say that "blood clots in the leg are not serious" is plain stupid. They're serious. They're unpredictable. Of course they need to be treated -- so does diabetes, so does strep throat, so does a brain tumor or a broken ankle. But don't designate a health problem as "not serious" when it has the potential to permanently injure or even sometimes kill somebody. All health problems need to be treated. But all health problems aren't equal.

Hillary Clinton is getting the best care in the country. But other people aren't so lucky and should know that a thrombus is a problem. Yes, it's more dangerous when it's in the lung or the heart or the brain but it's still serious. And we don't know how big it is. It could be a long motherfucker.

The hospitalization is to give her anticoagulation intravenously or via the abdomen. They'll check her INR value and eventually prescribe oral warfarin. If everything is copacetic, she'll then be discharged, following up with anticoagulation based on her blood values.

Clinton remained hospitalized Monday at New York Presbyterian Hospital for a clot that was discovered during a follow-up exam related to a concussion she suffered this month, her spokesman said.

Hillary Clinton Progressing After Blood Clot In Head, Expected To Fully Recover: Doctor

BY JOSH LEDERMAN & MATTHEW LEE, ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON (AP) — Doctors treating Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton for a blood clot say the clot formed in her head but they stress that they are confident she will make a full recovery.

In an update Monday on Clinton's condition, her doctors say the blood clot did not result in a stroke, or neurological damage. The clot is located in the vein in the space between the brain and the skull behind the right ear.

Clinton's doctors say that to help dissolve the clot, they are treating her with blood thinners. They say she will be released once the medication dose has been established.

In their update, the doctors say the 65-year-old secretary of state is making excellent progress and is in good spirits.

THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information. AP's earlier story is below.

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton spent a second day at a New York hospital on Monday, under observation for a blood clot, stemming from a concussion she sustained while battling a stomach virus.

The illness has kept her out of the public view since Dec. 7, and has started to raise a host of questions as her team keeps typically tightlipped about the details: Where is the clot located? How severe is her condition? How soon will she recover? And, as Democrats are privately if not publicly speculating, how might her illness affect a decision about running for president in 2016?

Aides disclosed the blood clot Sunday, with her spokesman, Phillipe Reines, issuing a statement that said: "Her doctors will continue to assess her condition, including other issues associated with her concussion." He had no immediate update Monday on her condition, raising the question of whether she will return to work before she steps down as secretary of state.

After decades in politics, Clinton, 65, says she plans to spend the next year resting. She has long insisted she had no intention of mounting a second campaign for the White House four years from now. But the door is not entirely closed, and she would almost certainly emerge as the Democrat to beat if she decided to give in to calls by Democratic fans and run again.

Her age – and thereby health – would likely be a factor under consideration, given that Clinton would be 69 when sworn in, if she were elected in 2016. That might become even more of an issue in the early jockeying for 2016 if what started as a bad stomach bug becomes a prolonged, public bout with more serious infirmity.

Not that Democrats are willing to talk openly about the political implications of a long illness, choosing to keep any discussions about her condition behind closed doors. Publicly, Democrats reject the notion that a blood clot could hinder her political prospects.

"Some of those concerns could be borderline sexist," said Basil Smikle, a Democratic strategist who worked for Clinton when she was a senator. "Dick Cheney had significant heart problems when he was vice president, and people joked about it. He took the time he needed to get better, and it wasn't a problem."

It isn't uncommon for presidential candidates' health – and age – to be an issue. Both in 2000 and 2008, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., had to rebut concerns he was too old to be commander in chief or that his skin cancer could resurface.

Two decades after Clinton became the first lady, signs of her popularity – and her political strength – are ubiquitous.

Obama had barely declared victory in November when Democrats started zealously plugging Clinton as their strongest White House contender four years from now, should she choose to take that leap.

"Wouldn't that be exciting," House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi declared in December. "I hope she goes – why wouldn't she?"

Even Republicans concede that were she to run, Clinton would be a force to be reckoned with.
