ORIGINAL ARTICLE • Retrospective Analysis of the Diagnostic Accuracy of Lung Ultrasound for Pulmonary Embolism in Patients with and without Pleuritic Chest Pain

Pleuritic chest pain – sharp chest pain exacerbated by breathing or coughing – is a common presenting symptom in the emergency department (ED) and requires a careful differential diagnosis between benign conditions such as musculoskeletal pain, and more serious diseases like pulmonary embolism (...

CASE REPORT • Notching into a Diagnosis—Incorporating Doppler Interrogation into Point-of-Care Ultrasonography to Diagnose a Submassive Pulmonary Embolism.

Often, patients with pulmonary embolism (PE) present with nonspecific symptoms. This, in turn, pose a diagnostic dilemma. The authors present in this case report a case of submassive PE diagnosed in a patient utilizing point-of-care ultrasonography (POCUS) in the emergency department (ED)....

RESEARCH • Intermediate-Risk Pulmonary Embolism: Echocardiography Predictors of Clinical Deterioration

Acute pulmonary embolism (PE) can lead to clinical deterioration due to its effect on the right ventricle (RV). Since there are no consistent definitions or assessments of abnormal RV (abnlRV) there is limited data on association between abnlRV and clinical outcomes and prognostic performance......
