Mechanism of Fatal Pulmonary Embolism
Mechanism of Fatal Pulmonary Embolism
This stock medical exhibit depicts the mechanism of fatal pulmonary embolism. The first image shows an anterior view of a male figure showing the path of the embolism which starts from the lower extermity and travels though the venous circulation to the heart. The next three images show details of the normal blood flow in the vein, the formation of a blood clot (thrombus) and a portion of the thrombus breaking loose (embolus) into the bloodstream. The next image shows a cut-away view of the left lung showing the embolus travels through the heart and into the lungs. The final image is an enlarged cut-away view of the lung of the embolus lodged in the pulmonary arteries blocking blood flow and oxygen exchange into the lungs.
