Doctors save lives when they make a timely diagnosis of a blood clot or pulmonary embolism. When they fail to identify or diagnose the medical problem in time, patients can suffer severe and sometimes deadly heart attacks and strokes. The bond of trust is forever broken when a medical professional falls short in providing the most basic standards of care.
Pulmonary embolism is a blockage of the blood flow to the lungs due to a blood clot or other obstruction, including an air bubble or piece of cholesterol in the lining of the vein. Danger signs exist and it is a physician's job to provide a thorough and proper diagnosis. Failure to do so could result in brain damage or death.
