The ICD code I26 is used to code Pulmonary embolism

Pulmonary embolism (PE) is a blockage of the lung's main artery or one of its branches by a substance that has traveled from elsewhere in the body through the bloodstream (embolism). PE results from a deep vein thrombosis (commonly a blood clot in a leg) that breaks off and migrates to the lung, a process termed venous thromboembolism (VTE). The risk of VTE is increased in various situations, such as cancer or prolonged bed rest. A small proportion of cases are caused by the embolization of air, fat, or talc in drugs of intravenous drug users or amniotic fluid.
