Pulmonary embolism linked to sitting for long periods of time

Posted on July 21st, 2011 No Comments

Pulmonary embolism or blood clots in the lungs can be increased by excessive amounts of sitting.

A study that followed 70,000 nurses for 18 years found that those who spent their free time sitting were more likely to have blood clots in theirĀ  lungs than those who were more active.

Other factors were also looked into such as smoking, heart disease, body weight and the use of medications. Symptoms of a pulmonary embolism can be shortness of breathe, increased heart rate and pain while breathing.

They can usually be treated, but at times can be fatal. The study was not able to state that people who sat more will definitely get blood clots, but a “sluggish blood flow” can contribute to the problem.

Recently, there have also been claims that the risk of developing a pulmonary embolism is associated with the use of Yasmin, Yaz or Ocella birth control. If you have developed a blood clot after using these oral contraceptive, contact the Yasmin pulmonary embolism lawyers of Williams Kherkher today by calling 800-761-3187.
