Was Your Pulmonary Embolism Preventable?

Pulmonary Embolism is estimated to be one of the leading causes of preventable deaths during hospitalization. The condition develops when a blood clot, called a thrombus, becomes lodged in the blood vessels of the lungs. In most cases, the blood clot that causes pulmonary embolism is formed in the large veins of the leg. When it becomes dislodged, the clot can travel up into the lungs and completely or partially block an artery, causing recognizable symptoms ranging from shortness of breath, sharp chest pain, rapid pulse, profuse sweating, anxiety and others. Death and brain damage can occur suddenly, sometimes within 30 minutes of symptoms, so it’s critical to recognize the signs of pulmonary embolism and treat it immediately.

When Should Doctors Recognize Pulmonary Embolism?

There are many stages at which pulmonary embolism and thrombosis ought to be recognized by medical professionals. When the signs of the condition are misinterpreted or minimized by medical staff as stress or a less serious condition, the delay can be lethal. If you or a family member has been affected by pulmonary embolism resulting in death or serious injury, and you feel a medical professional should have recognized the symptoms, medical negligence may be at fault. You should consult a competent medical malpractice attorney to advise you on your situation.
