Complications from Pulmonary Embolisms

Your blood naturally contains clotting elements that help you stop bleeding after you suffer from a laceration or other such injury. However, sometimes medication and other factors can increase the strength of these clotting elements, causing your blood to form abnormal clots in your blood vessels. This can lead to a dangerous condition called pulmonary embolism, which is when one of these blood clots travels to your lungs.

Pulmonary embolism is deadly in itself, but it can also lead to several other devastating complications. If you have suffered from a blood clot in your lung after taking the oral contraceptives YAZ, Yasmin, or Ocella, you may be entitled to financial compensation. Contact the YAZ side-effects attorneys from Williams Kherkher today at 800-761-3187 to discuss your case.

What is Pulmonary Embolism?

Pulmonary embolism, or PE, occurs when a blood clot gets lodged in your lung tissue. Conditions like thrombophlebitis or deep vein thrombosis can turn into PE as blood clots travel through the bloodstream to the lungs. Unfortunately, the blood vessels in the lungs are very tiny, so a large area of lung tissue can get blocked by a single blood clot.

Potential Complications

Blood clots in the lungs can cause complications with your respiratory system and the rest of your body, including:

  • Pulmonary hypertension
  • Heart palpitations
  • Cardiogenic shock (heart failure)
  • Decreased blood oxygen levels

Frighteningly, studies have shown that if a PE is severe enough to cause heart failure and other complications, the affected individual has a survival rate of only 50%.
