San Jose Lawyer Helping Victims of Pulmonary Embolisms
A pulmonary embolism is a clot in the blood vessels of the lungs, and it is crucial to identify the symptoms, including:
- Shortness of breath
- Sharp chest pains
- Rapid pulse
- Sudden perspiration
- And more…
Pulmonary embolisms are considered one of the leading causes of preventable deaths in hospitals. Irreversible brain damage can begin to take place within 30 minutes of the first symptoms, so it is critical for doctors to identify the signs of a pulmonary embolism and treat it immediately.
When these symptoms are misunderstood, misdiagnosed or ignored by healthcare professionals, the delay in treatment can be deadly.
