Pulmonary Embolism

New York Lawyer Helping Victims of a Pulmonary Embolism

Studies have shown that one of the leading causes of preventable deaths during hospitalization is due to a pulmonary embolism. A pulmonary embolism is a blood clot that becomes lodged in the blood vessels of the lungs. In most cases, a blood clot starts in the large veins of the leg. When the clot becomes dislodged, it travels up into the lungs and either entirely or partially blocks an artery.

The symptoms of a pulmonary embolism are very clear. They range from shortness of breath to sharp chest pain, rapid pulse, intense sweating, anxiety and more. Death and brain damage can occur sometimes within 30 minutes of symptoms. It is critical to recognize the signs of a pulmonary embolism and treat it immediately.

Medical providers are trained professionals and there are many stages at which a pulmonary embolism should be recognized. When the symptoms of the condition are misunderstood or minimized by medical staff as stress or a less serious condition, the delay can be deadly.

If you or a loved one has suffered a pulmonary embolism, call us now at (800) 888-8888 or contact us by clicking on New York Pulmonary Embolism Attorney.
