About

Acute pulmonary embolism is a potentially life-threatening disease with short-term mortality ranges from less than 1% to more than 30% during the hospital stay. Recent guidelines recommend to tailor diagnosis hospitalization and acute treatment based on the estimated risk for short-term Death. The assessment of the contemporary clinical management of patients with acute pulmonary embolism across different specialties would be of crucial value.

Full description
