Dr. Calvin Weisberger
Cardiology 51 years experience
Pulmonary embolus: When a clot blocks lung vessels and lung tissue dies, frequently blood is coughed up from the infarcted lung.
Dr. Matthew Cooper
Thoracic Surgery 38 years experience
Pulmonary embolism: Coughing up blood occurs in some patients with pulmonary embolism. Treatment, if any, is determined by the amount of blood, and whether it continues, whether there are other concerns about the underlying lung, and is considered along with the blood thinners used to treat the blood clot in the lung.
