Evaluation of the pulmonary embolism rule out criteria (PERC rule) in children evaluated for suspected pulmonary embolism.

The pulmonary embolism rule out criteria (PERC) reliably predicts a low probability of PE in adults. We examine the diagnostic accuracy of the objective components of the PERC rule in children previou...

Navigating the Pulmonary Perfusion Map: Dual-Energy Computed Tomography in Acute Pulmonary Embolism.

Pulmonary embolism is the third most common acute cardiovascular disease. Dual-energy computed tomography perfusion imaging is a promising adjunct in the detection of acute PE providing simultaneous f...

90-kVp low-tube-voltage CT pulmonary angiography in combination with advanced modelled iterative reconstruction algorithm: effects on radiation dose, image quality, and diagnostic accuracy for the detection of pulmonary embolism.

To evaluate low-tube-voltage 90-kVp computed tomography pulmonary angiography (CTPA) with advanced modelled iterative reconstruction algorithm (Admire) compared to 120-kVp equivalent dual-energy acqui...

A low end-tidal CO/arterial CO ratio during cardiopulmonary resuscitation suggests pulmonary embolism.

Identifying reversible causes of cardiac arrest is challenging. The diagnosis of pulmonary embolism is often missed. Pulmonary embolism increases alveolar dead space resulting in low end-tidal CO (EtC...

Aortic Dissection Detection-Risk Score: A Clinical Decision Rule that Needs Some Parenting.

Clinical decision rules and risk scores can be useful adjuncts to the evaluation of patients in the emergency department. These decision aids work best when they either prompt the ordering of diagnost...

PERCEPIC: PERC Rule Combined With Implicit Low Clinical Probability

PERC rule was created to rule out pulmonary embolism (PE) without further exams, with residual PE risk

Identifying Low-Risk Patients With Pulmonary Embolism

To develop a clinical prediction rule to identify patients with acute pulmonary embolism who are at very low risk for short-term adverse outcomes.

Prospective Investigation of Pulmonary Embolism Diagnosis (PIOPED)

To evaluate the sensitivity and specificity of two major, widely used technologies, radionuclear imaging (ventilation-perfusion scanning) and pulmonary angiography, for the diagnosis of pu...

Prospective Investigation of Pulmonary Embolism Diagnosis III

The purpose of this study is to determine the diagnostic accuracy of gadolinium-enhanced magnetic resonance angiography (Gd-MRA) of the pulmonary arteries in combination with magnetic reso...

PEITHO Pulmonary Embolism Thrombolysis Study

Heparin is the reference therapy for most patients with pulmonary embolism. Some patients with sub-massive pulmonary embolism defined by normal blood pressure and dysfunction of the right ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Hypertrophy and dilation of the RIGHT VENTRICLE of the heart that is caused by PULMONARY HYPERTENSION. This condition is often associated with pulmonary parenchymal or vascular diseases, such as CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE and PULMONARY EMBOLISM.

Blocking of the PULMONARY ARTERY or one of its branches by an EMBOLUS.

Excessive accumulation of extravascular fluid in the lung, an indication of a serious underlying disease or disorder. Pulmonary edema prevents efficient PULMONARY GAS EXCHANGE in the PULMONARY ALVEOLI, and can be life-threatening.

Narrowing below the PULMONARY VALVE or well below it in the infundibuluar chamber where the pulmonary artery originates, usually caused by a defective VENTRICULAR SEPTUM or presence of fibrous tissues. It is characterized by restricted blood outflow from the RIGHT VENTRICLE into the PULMONARY ARTERY, exertional fatigue, DYSPNEA, and chest discomfort.

Respiratory syndrome characterized by the appearance of a new pulmonary infiltrate on chest x-ray, accompanied by symptoms of fever, cough, chest pain, tachypnea, or DYSPNEA, often seen in patients with SICKLE CELL ANEMIA. Multiple factors (e.g., infection, and pulmonary FAT EMBOLISM) may contribute to the development of the syndrome.
