Most often, people notice the consequence after trying to take a deep breath as the lungs need more oxygen when the disease happens. As a result, the patients may be running out of breath, wake up breathless in the middle of the night, etc. It all leads to anxiety and ongoing exhaustion. Finally, health care professionals report of the chronic type, dry coughing. It makes people wake up being too sweaty.
Health care providers often call the disease simply PE to make it shorter. As a rule, the process begins in the lower extremities’ veins. The blood clot which is guilty of provoking the disease may release while being in the body for a while. It then starts moving to other organs using the bloodstream.
Thus, it transfers from the legs to other body parts, which makes the situation rather dangerous. In the end, the clot simply blocks the artery, and the disorder becomes vivid. In most situations, patients after the recent surgeries or traumas who are not able to move for some time are under the highest threat. The same situation may develop when one is sitting in the office or in the bed days long without even having a walk.
