Pulmonary Embolism

Pulmonary Embolism - What it is

Pulmonary embolism occurs when a blood clot occurs in the lung which results in a blockage of the blood supply to lungs. The blood clot can originate from the legs which may break off and travel through the blood stream to lodge in the lungs, causing severe damage to that organ. In other cases, it may start in the blood vessels of the lung.
