Acute Pulmonary Embolism

ESC Webinar

European Society of Cardiology DD/MM/YYYY
Pulmonary Embolism

Focus on

By the end of this Webinar, the participants will be able to:

  • Understand the global disease burden related to venous thromboembolism;
  • Apply evidence-based, risk-adjusted algorithms to diagnose or exclude clinically suspected pulmonary embolism;
  • Understand the importance of assessing “pre-test” probability of pulmonary embolism and the utility of age-adjusted D-dimer cutoffs;
  • Distinguish between intermediate-high, intermediate-low, and low-risk pulmonary embolism, and apply this knowledge in the acute-phase management;
  • Understand the modalities, benefits, and caveats of early reperfusion therapy (systemic thrombolysis, surgical or catheter-directed treatment);
  • Decide on the use vitamin K antagonists versus non-vitamin K-dependent oral anticoagulants (NOACs) in the treatment and secondary prophylaxis;
  • Treat venous thromboembolism during pregnancy;
  • Make a state-of-the-art triage of patients who may be candidates for extended or indefinite anticoagulation after PE;
  • Identify patients prone to develop chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension after pulmonary embolism.

General cardiology webinars on-demand are now exclusively CME accredited for ESC Professional & Professional Plus Members.
