Final diagnosis
Joan´s final diagnosis is Pulmonary Arterial Embolism, which is were one or more
arteries in the lung become blocked, most likely blood clots.
 Treatment
Prompt treatment to break up the clot significantly decreases the likelihood of death. This
can be accomplished through blood thinners (warfarin or heparin) and other drugs
(aspirin or clopidogrel) or in severe cases the clot can be dissolved by a procedure called
thrombolytic therapy. Some drug therapy require dosage monitoring with blood test. If
blood thinners aren´t tolerated, a inferior vena cava filter (IVC filter).Which is a device
that’s placed in the main vein in your belly it keeps large clots from traveling into the
blood vessels of the lung and can be removed later. A stay in the hospital may be required
to monitor the patient´s condition.
