Herbal Remedies for Pulmonary Thromboembolism Hypoxemic


Human body is a complex system that is made up of many  organs. These organs vary in size, shape and weight and one of these vitals organs are the lungs. The lungs have bronchioles that end up in the alveoli that are air filled spaces. From here the oxygen gets mixed with blood and then is supplied to the heart from where it is pumped to various parts of our body. Oxygen is very much essential for our body’s working and also for the cellular functions. In pulmonary thromboembolism hypoxemic the pulmonary artery gets blocked due thrombus and thus causing hypoxia. Pulmonary artery  is the one of the most important arteries in our body because it carries deoxygenated blood from the right ventricle to the lungs where it gets oxygenated. Blockage in this artery produces a situation where the body is having irrelevant amounts of deoxygenated blood causing hypoxia. In this article we will discuss pulmonary thromboembolism in detail.


In pulmonary thromboembolism, pulmonary is related to lungs, thrombo represents the blood clotting and embolism is obstruction in an artery due to clots. In this condition generally the thrombus or the blood clot from deep veins (like veins of legs) travel with the deoxygenated blood into pulmonary artery and hence obstruct the flow of blood in the artery known as embolism. Hypoxia  in this case is the result of the presence of deoxygenated blood in the circulation due to which cells get deprived of oxygen. Lack of oxygen in the body is marked by bluish discoloration of extremities (termed as cyanosis) like nails, skin, tip of fingers and toes etc.

Pulmonary Thromboembolism Hypoxemia

Let’s discuss it in detail.

Causes of pulmonary thromboembolism hypoxia

There are many reasons which can be understood as the cause of pulmonary thromboembolism. Deep vein thrombosis, fracture leading to venous rupture and formation of clot, lack of physical activity, intake of heavy, oily, cheesy, greasy food which makes blood thick, likely to clot and hence formation of thrombus will be observed. This thrombus can detach from its original site and will reach the pulmonary artery with circulation causing embolism. The people who are at risk generally include patients who have a previous history of embolism, patients with deep vein thrombosis, blood clotting disorders, fatty people, patients on hormone therapy of estrogen or progesterone and people falling in the age group of 60-70 years of age.


The first and the foremost sign is breathlessness due to lack of oxygen in the body associated with anxiety, dizziness and pain in the chest. In some patients pain in chest, hypotension and severe cough is also present. Heartbeat is generally regular because of lack of oxygen, profuse sweating, appearance of cyanosis and swelling in legs along with soreness is also observed.

Investigation for pulmonary thromboembolism

  1. Pulmonary angiography is done by introducing dyes in your blood to visualize the blood vessels of the lungs clearly.
  2. Chest X-ray is performed to confirm the normality of ribs.
  3. CT- scan is done to identify the damage which is already done.
  4. Magnetic resonant topography (MRI)
  5. ECG (electrocardiography) is done to observe the functioning of the heart.

Treatment of Pulmonary Thromboembolism Hypoxemic

The recommended treatment in modern for this condition includes blood thinners termed as anticoagulants (like aspirin) and clot dissolvers which are termed as thrombolytics (like eminase). The blood thinners work by reducing the chances of further platelet formation and clot dissolvers work by dissolving the clots present in the arteries. If symptoms in this case are ignored for long then most likely the patient may end up in an emergency situation and will need a very swift action otherwise the condition can prove fatal.
