more coming I have a client who recently experienced 2 Pulmonary Embolisms so I wanted to do some research on this subject and this is what I found.
A pulmonary embolism is a blood clot that blocks and stops blood flow to an artery in the lung. In most cases, the blood clot starts in a deep vein in the leg and travels to the lung. Rarely, the clot forms in a vein in another part of the body.
