Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your question.

yes intravenous heparin can be given immediately to stop blood clot from going through heart.
based on my experience you need intensive close monitoring by team of doctors probably in hospital(intensive care unit) for at least 5 days.

You need to go to emergency department if you have clot already.

Hope I answered your question, will be happy to help you if you have other queries.

Regards,
