John Smith a 52 year old man suffered a pulmonary embolism that orinated as a blood clot in his righ leg. This happened when he was a patient at Columbia hospital. Mr S mith has been on bed rest for a few days. ONe morning he had copliants of lightheadness pain and swelling in his right leg along with a rapid heart rate. It was soon determined that Mr Smith had a deep vein thrombosis, otherwise known as a DVT. His happened when a blood clt was embedded deep in a vein in his right leg. The clot blocked a blood circulation through these veins, which carries blood form the lower body back to the heart. A blood clot broke loose and traveled through his blood stream and caused a blockage of blood vessels also known as the pulmpnary arteries in the lungs
