FAQ


How is Pulmonary Embolism Different than Other Blood Clot Problems?

Pulmonary embolism is a medical condition related to blood clotting, but it differs from other clotting problems in a variety of ways. If you are concerned about clotting issues or you believe you might be at risk for pulmonary embolism, you should know the following about the condition:

It Starts in the Legs

Pulmonary embolism almost always begins with a blood clot in the leg. It is possible for other issues to trigger pulmonary embolism, but this is extremely rare. Typically, deep vein thrombosis forms. Eventually, the clot dislodges from where it originated and moves through the body until it reaches the pulmonary artery. It lodges into the area and prevents blood flow from traveling into or out of the lungs. The odds of the clot getting stuck are increased when a person’s arteries are clogged for other reasons. Once blood flow is stopped, damage is done to the lung tissue. The longer the blood flow is on hold, the greater the damage to the tissue.

It Affects the Lungs

Pulmonary embolism affects the lungs (“pulmonary” is always lung related). Blood clots can occur in any part of your body. They are often the cause of heart attacks and strokes. They can also form and dissolve without a person ever knowing they existed. However, in the case of a blood clot that triggers a pulmonary embolism, it is specifically the lungs that are affected.

It Might be Fatal

Pulmonary embolism is a very serious occurrence and it can be fatal. In most cases it is not, but it does cause serious damage to the lungs. If medical attention is not sought, it can result in death. Luckily, symptoms are usually severe enough that emergency medical attention is a necessity. Symptoms include chest pain and problems breathing, and they can be very similar to a heart attack. This typically triggers a person to contact 911 and undergo emergency treatment, which likely results in life-saving measures.

It is Not Normal

Pulmonary embolism is not normal. Blood clots are normal, depending on where they form and what they form in response to. For instance, if a person cuts his skin and bleeds, a clot will form to stop the bleeding and prevent further complications. This is normal. Unfortunately, blood clotting is not always normal and can be an indication of a more serious health problem. If you suffer deep vein thrombosis and a blood clot of this kind forms it is important to enact a treatment plan that will prevent additional health risks.
