Pulmonary Embolism: Next Generation

Pulmonary Embolism: Next Generation – Lauren Westafer

Lauren Westafer introduces the concept of a new generation of pulmonary embolism (PE). What was once considered a deadly disease process now carries a mortality rate of <3%, which may be driven by overtesting as well as overdiagnosis. This talk explores the phenomenon and current evidence-based approaches to the evaluation and treatment of pulmonary embolus.
