Product Information

CHEST develops slide sets to incorporate into educational presentations, for the purposes of disseminating and explaining guideline recommendations. Prevention of Venous Thromboembolism in Nonorthopedic Surgical Patients D-dimer cut-offs should be adjusted to age and pretest probability rather than fixed values. For subsegmental pulmonary embolism and no proximal DVT, we suggest clinical surveillance over anticoagulation with a low risk of recurrent VTE (Grade 2C), and anticoagulation over clinical surveillance with a high risk (Grade 2C).

Pulmonary embolism (PE) is the third most common cause of death among hospitalized patients ().Older age, comorbid cardiopulmonary diseases, and thrombolytic treatment are associated with increased healthcare costs and worse outcomes ().Patients with PE can have mild to moderate functional impairment even after 18 months from the initial event (). In the International Cooperative Pulmonary Embolism Registry (ICOPER), the 90-day mortality rate for patients with acute PE and systolic blood pressure <90 mm Hg at presentation (108 patients) was 52.4% (95% confidence interval [CI] 43.3% to 62.1%) versus 14.7% (95% CI 13.3% to 16.2%) in the remainder of the cohort.
