    EKOS Procedure Busts Up Threatening Clots

    William Magnuson had just come back inside his Glenwood, Iowa, home after taking the trash out in late March when the world started spinning.

    He walked into the living room and told his daughter that he needed to sit down. He still didn’t feel well, so he decided to go lie down in a bedroom.

    The next thing he knew, he was lying on the floor, his wife telling him not to get up. Emergency responders checked him out, and his wife took him to Jennie Edmundson Hospital in Council Bluffs.

    There, doctors discovered a blood clot — a pulmonary embolism — in an artery leading to his lung.
