pulmonary embolism is a condition in which a blood clot from a distant source gets dislodged from its primary site and gets lodged at a different site causing obstruction to blood flow.
a vessel in the pulmonary circulation in this case.
usually a ventilation/ per fusion scan is warranted to locate and access the damage.

once with a history of PE is established the patient is kept on anticoagulants (which have their own adverse effects) t iterating the potential benefits and risk associated. these can continue lifelong

the primary causes which led to the secondary event need to be managed to rule out the possibility of recurrence of the event.

i need your history in detail as well as have to review your old reports to advise a personalized plan
use the video consult feature to do so
