European Society of Cardiology algorithm for patients with suspected non-high-risk PE.

Adapted from Konstantinides et al. Two alternative classification schemes may be used for clinical probability assessment, i.e. a three-level scheme (clinical probability defined as low, intermediate or high) or a two-level scheme (PE unlikely or PE likely). Treatment refers to anticoagulation treatment for PE. CT pulmonary angiogram is considered to be diagnostic of PE if it shows PE at the segmental or more proximal level. dIn case of a negative CT pulmonary angiogram in patients with a high clinical probability, further investigation may be considered before withholding PE-specific treatment. CT, computed tomography; PE, pulmonary embolism.

European Society of Cardiology algorithm for patients with suspected high-risk PE.

Adapted from Konstantinides et al. Includes cases in which the patient’s condition is so critical that it only allows bedside diagnostic tests. Apart from the diagnosis of RV dysfunction, a bedside transthoracic echocardiogram may, in some cases, directly confirm PE by visualizing mobile thrombi in the right heart chambers. Thrombolysis; alternatively, surgical embolectomy or catheter-directed treatment. CT, computed tomography; PE, pulmonary embolism; RV, right ventricular.
