First Things First (assess & treat for the following)
- Consider immediate parenteral anticoagulation if sign of massive DVT (upper leg, inguinal involvement).
- Assess for contraindications to anticoagulation at the same time!
- If venous thromboembolism (VTE) is present, then treatment is aimed as soon as possible at limiting propagation of thrombus and likelihood of pulmonary embolism.
- If clinical likelihood of DVT is low (rather than moderate/high), then order confirmatory blood test.
