Misdiagnosed Blood Clots Can Cause Serious Injury Or Death
Simple surgical procedures, fractures and even long airline flights can sometimes give way to life-threatening medical emergencies. The occurrence of a pulmonary blockage of an artery or embolus, for example, can quickly kill an otherwise healthy patient. Pulmonary embolism (in the lungs) can originate with phlebitis, or blood clots in a leg or in the pelvic region. Deep venous thrombosis should be promptly diagnosed and treated aggressively to protect a post-surgical or any bedridden patient from disastrous consequences of a blood clot traveling to the lungs and/or to the brain.
