Pulmonary Embolism

A pulmonary embolism is a sudden blockage in a lung artery. The cause is usually a blood clot in the leg called a deep vein thrombosis that breaks loose and travels through the bloodstream to the lung. Pulmonary embolism is a serious condition that can cause. -Permanent damage to the affected lung . -Low oxygen levels in your blood . -Damage to other organs in your body from not getting enough oxygen . If a clot is large, or if there are many clots, pulmonary embolism can cause death. . Half the people who have pulmonary embolism have no symptoms. If you do have symptoms, they can include shortness of breath, chest pain or coughing up blood. Symptoms of a blood clot include warmth, swelling, pain, tenderness and redness of the leg. The goal of treatment is to break up clots and help keep other clots from forming. . NIH: National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute.  [from MedlinePlus]
