Preventing Pulmonary Embolism: What You Can Do

Pulmonary embolism occurs when a blood clot dislodges from where it formed and travels to the area near the lungs. This blocks the flow of blood and oxygen in the area and can permanently damage the lungs. In severe cases, pulmonary embolism can be fatal.

Preventing pulmonary embolism really involves preventing blood clots from forming. Once a clot has formed, there are additional things that can be done to help the clot dissolve, remove the clot, or prevent it from dislodging and moving in the system.

Medication

Once a problem is detected, your doctor is likely to prescribe anticoagulant medication. This stops new clots from forming and limits the growth of existing clots. This type of medication may be prescribed if a clot is discovered or if there is a history of pulmonary embolism.

The risk for pulmonary embolism is highest in the period of time just after an incident has occurred. Over time, the risk decreases, so medication may only be necessary for a short period of time. The time in which you are at risk varies and can range from a few weeks to years. Your doctor will determine how long aggressive treatment is required to prevent recurrence. If you have an ongoing issue with blood clots, your doctor may suggest taking anticoagulant medication for the rest of your life.

You might also need to take the medication if your lifestyle puts you at risk for blood clots. For instance, if you are inactive because of illness or injury, it is important to keep your blood thin and circulating throughout your body. Medication may be prescribed in combination with physical therapy and tools to promote blood circulation. This is especially the case during risky periods, such as after surgery.

Travel

Another important factor to consider when preventing pulmonary embolism is how travel will affect your risk. If you are traveling long distances, you will likely be sitting still on a plane or in a car. The risk for pulmonary embolism increases a great deal during travel because of this immobility. If you are at risk for blood clots or pulmonary embolism, make sure you discuss your travel arrangements with your doctor in advance. He or she will likely recommend frequent breaks for moving and may offer additional tips to ensure a safe trip.

It is possible to live a healthy, happy life, even if you have an increased risk for pulmonary embolism. You just need to know how to manage your symptoms and avoid complications as much as possible.
