Can you get a blood clot and die from sitting too long in the same position?

I think you can get deep vein thrombosis when travelling long distances by bus or plane. They used to warn you to do leg exercises before landing and throughout the flight..

The main risk factor for blood clotting is immobilization. It is important to move around routinely so that blood can circulate in the venous system. On long trips, for example, it is recommended to get out of the car every couple of hours and in an airplane routinely get up and stretch. Also, physicians and nurses work hard at getting people moving after surgery or while in the hospital for medical conditions. So, depending on how long you're sitting in the same position, if you're in that position for a very, very, very long time (I mean, days, months, etc.) then it's possible that you can die from a blood clot. Other than that, if you get up and move around, your blood will circulate in all the systems. Hopefully that helps. :)
