Medgeeks Clinical Review Podcast

Sep 13, 2018

Last week we presented a patient presenting with signs and symptoms of a PE and CTA confirmed saddle pulmonary embolism. 

So, now the questions is, what type of PE is this?

  • Massive
  • Submassive
  • Non-massive (low risk)

It's important we separate patients into different categories, because each category will have different adverse outcomes, and more importantly, differences in mortality risk.

Therefore, if we can group these patients into a category, then this is the first step in identifying the best course of action.

Today, we'll walk you through this every step of the way!
