Pulmonary Embolisms

It isn’t often that you hear the term pulmonary embolism in a positive way. That’s because

this health condition is a serious one. Pulmonary embolisms can be fatal if they are severe

enough or do not receive proper treatment in a timely manner. Just like with heart attacks,

cancer, stroke and many other serious health conditions, early detection is the most

important factor in having a positive recovery experience.

First, you should know the basics about having a pulmonary embolism. Understanding the

condition will give you a better idea of how doctors treat it and why they choose to treat it

in the way they do. You will also gain an understanding of just how serious it can become if

it is not treated on time.

After you explore the basics and the symptoms of the condition, you will need to know what

doctors will use to treat a pulmonary embolism. Going into the treatment knowing what to

expect will help you cope with any medications, procedures and lifestyle changes that might

be prescribed to you by your health care provider.

Introduction to Pulmonary Embolisms: Facts and Symptoms

So, what is a pulmonary embolism and why is it so serious and even fatal in some cases? That

is a great question. You might have heard the term but never fully understood what a

pulmonary embolism actually is.

A pulmonary embolism occurs when you have an abrupt obstruction of one or more of your main

blood vessels in the lung. This normally happens due to a blood clot and can cause

significant damage to the lung tissue since it stops the blood flow to the lung.

Patients with a pulmonary embolism experience an abrupt problems breathing, coughing that

results in foamy pink mucus and a very sharp discomfort in their chest that gets worse with a

cough or deep breath. You might also feel on edge or really anxious, have feelings of

fainting or have a racing heart rate. Any of these symptoms are cause for alarm and you

should see your doctor at once.

Treatment for Pulmonary Embolism: Initial and Long-Term

When you receive the diagnosis of a pulmonary embolism, your doctor will proceed at once to

determine the best course of treatment to give you the best odds for a full recovery. The

goal of treatment is to remove or dissolve the clot that is in the arteries of the lungs.

This can be done by either administering medications or by some procedures. Long-term

treatment works with preventative measures including medications and procedures to eliminate

the risk of future pulmonary embolisms.

Medications for initial and long-term treatment include anticoagulants. These are known as

blood thinners and they work to help your blood not clot as easily. Thrombolytics are also

usually used as they dissolve clots very quickly.

Clot removal can be done using a catheter procedure though your blood vessels and they will

remove the clot with suction. Filters can also be placed in your veins to prevent clots from

making their way to your heart and lungs. Long-term treatment plans will be developed with

your doctor. It may include medications, procedures or lifestyle changes to help make you

healthier to prevent this from happening to you again.
