According to NIH.gov, blood clots in the lungs are also referred to as Pulmonary embolus. The prognosis is based on patient to patient and if they have other complications such as additional injuries or illnesses. NIH.gov states that if shock or heart failure occur, the death rate can be higher than fifty percent.
