In brief: Pulmonary Embolism

Is a sudden blockage in a lung artery.
The blockage usually is caused by a blood clot that travels to the lung from a vein in the leg. Signs and symptoms of pulmonary embolism (pe) include unexplained shortness of breath, problems breathing, chest pain, coughing, or coughing up blood. An arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat) also may suggest that you have pe.
