2019-10-15 11:11:32 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of the study is to evaluate the value of biomarkers in the diagnosis and risk stratification of patients with suspected pulmonary embolism.


Management of patients with acute pulmonary embolism is a serious problem. The rapid and accurate diagnosis and risk stratification of these patients is an important unmet clinical need. The aim of the study is to evaluate the value of biomarkers, alone or in combination, in the diagnosis and risk stratification of patients with suspected pulmonary embolism presenting to the emergency department.

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.

An anticoagulant that acts by inhibiting the synthesis of vitamin K-dependent coagulation factors. Warfarin is indicated for the prophylaxis and/or treatment of venous thrombosis and its extension, pulmonary embolism, and atrial fibrillation with embolization. It is also used as an adjunct in the prophylaxis of systemic embolism after myocardial infarction. Warfarin is also used as a rodenticide.

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.

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.
