Let’s say you’re on an interplanetary mission to Mars, millions of miles from the nearest hospital, and something in your body goes awry. Say, a routine body scan reveals a potentially life-threatening blood clot. What on Earth, or in space I guess, do you do? Well now we have the answer to that question.

I'm all for space exploration I don't mind tax money of mine going to that but the International Space Station is a huge waste of money it's like astronauts get a vacation up there all they're doing is studying the effects of Zero Gravity on the body the muscles and bones.. come on now what how does that even help us on a gravity Earth use arbues my tax money I'm going to Mars or the moon not going up there and having a picnic in the International Space Station growing down flowers and vegetables up there it doesn't make any common sense

Why don’t you just store medication on a large exploration such as to Mars so the astronauts can treat themselves and not worry too badly about the potential blood clot or other illness/disease like the coronavirus.

bro i bet they billed his insurance $234,125,119 for that resupply medication but after adjustments it was $14,253 and the astronaut was responsible for his $10,000 deductible.

Oh, so you treated a DVT with Lovenox and Eliquis?...exactly how it would be treated by EVERY primary care doctor in the United States. And people that have limited mobility are at an increased risk of clots just like on earth, you don’t say? THE END. Great video 👎. Using medical jargon toward laypeople to convince them something miraculous is going on is not the same thing as quality content. Do better

Wake up, a NASA rocket is an inverted blimp. Slowest rocket blast of all time. Like an old man in a bathtub. No other rocket other than NASA's in human history has moved so slow. Well perhaps ROSCO, JAXA, ESA.... You people really believe there is a space surgeon? Really? You think Hilton Hotel really bakes their cookies in space? Really? Morons. All of you.

At least they had an injectable medicine on board. Because it takes effect immediately, and you dont need to use as much.

This may not be a problem. Everything points toward creating a Mars spacecraft to have at least a spinning section, if not an entire spinning ship, to create a centrifugal force that would mimic gravity. None of us can answer why the INTL space station wasn't built with such a section, but until they create artificial gravity via other means, that's our next step.
dgretlein Hace un mes
Very interesting .... it does raise yet another question, doesn’t it? While it is fantastic that we need human experiments, flights, orbits, missions to the Moon and Mars to learn more about our human limits. Question: were humans designed to be in space for extended periods of time? What is the limit?

Honestly I'm kind of surprised that this wasn't ever looked into more before. Blood clots seem an obvious risk factor to a micro-gravity environment. Have there been any past studies into this at all?
