      From what I understand, it's blood clots in the lungs.

        I think it's blood clotting or pooling. I don't think is necessarily serious but, like anything else, it can be a manifestation of something that is.

        Is there a doctor in the house?

              I have the same thing. It can be life threatening if not caught or if the clots are large enough. They put a filter in my groin to prevent large clots from traveling from my legs to my heart. They will put him on blood thinners for a while and he should be ok!

                  Not a doctor, just a lowly pre-med student, so hopefully a real MD will come along and offer more insight, but....

                  A pulmonary embolism is a blockage of one or more arteries in the lungs. It usually goes hand in hand with deep vein thrombosis (DVT)- in which a clot that originates (usually) in your legs travels to your lungs. PEs can be fatal- but that they caught it and he is expected to be released on Monday is a good sign. The two together (PE and DVT) are referred to as venous thromboembolism.

                  One of the bigger concerns with a PE is that the blockage can actually damage the surrounding lung tissue- essentially depriving it of oxygen and causing the tissue to die.

                  Usually it's treated with an anti-coagulant. How serious his case is depends on a lot of factors, and without knowing specifics it's hard to comment. It may be something that he'll need long-term treatment for, maybe not. I can't say.

                  I do hope he has a speedy recovery!

                    Usually a blood clot from your legs or another area related to DVT, but it could be air bubbles, it could be fat from the marrow of a broken bone... it depends.

                      Something is blocking the arteries to his lungs. Its usually a piece of fat, plaque, or air bubble that traveled from his leg. The condition can be fatal. But there are way too many variables to speculate further. Suffice to say he is getting less oxygen from his lungs.

                        An embolism can kill you if a big enough one gets into the heart or brain.

                        When you sit still for too long, blood can pool and clot. It then will travel and jam up in parts of the blood stream and cause strokes or heart attacks.

                        This is why you should always get up and move around during tv timeouts, and occasionally shift position during flights.

                          Well, that's just crazy talk. If I didn't want to lead a sedentary lifestyle, wouldn't have a subservient and submissive wife to bring me my beer, snacks and all the artery-clogging sustenance I desire during the game.

                          DAMMIT!! I gotta go wiz.
