Medical student in the United Kingdom, having previously studied Biology at A-Level. I spend a good deal of my time volunteering with St John Ambulance, which I find fantastically rewarding and when I'm not writing essays I'm handling flags here on Bio.SE.

comment Sitting much, thrombosis and hypoxia
@Masi one hypothesis for the original formation of the VTE is that venous stasis causes the haemoglobin in the static blood to desaturate resulting in hypoxic insult to the vein endothelium that then triggers the coagulation cascade. However, there isn't much of an evidence base behind this and it would be a cause of VTE rather than a consequence.

comment Regional circulation and Cardiac output?
Given the answer this is more of an English Language question than Biology so I'll close it.
