Hi. I have a relative who has been recently diagnosed with pulmonary embolism. I don`t know anything about that. And would like to found out if it`s dangerous, contagious or something. Is it possible that he could die? I heard that PE is a serious disease.

Yeah, pulmonary embolism is an extremely common and extremely serious condition. Highly lethal, also. PE is a leading cause of death in all age groups. Prompt diagnosis and treatment can dramatically reduce the mortality rate and morbidity of PE. Unfortunately, PE often causes nonspecific symptoms. Most cases of PE are diagnosed at autopsy. Fibrinolytic therapy is a standard care procedure for patients with massive or unstable PE.
