Symptoms of a pulmonary embolism, or PE, may include difficulty breathing, pain during breathing, and, more rarely, circulatory instability and death.
Signs of PE include sudden-onset dyspnea (shortness of breath, 73%), tachypnea (rapid breathing, 70%), chest pain of a "pleuritic" nature (worsened by breathing, 66%), cough (37%), hemoptysis (coughing up blood, 13%), and in severe cases, cyanosis (bluish discoloration of the skin due to the drop in oxygen in the blood), tachycardia (rapid heart rate), hypotension, shock, loss of consciousness, and death.
Although most cases have no clinical evidence of deep venous thrombosis (DVT), or a deep vein clot, in the legs, findings that indicate DVT may aid in the diagnosis.
