Hans Rosenberg, MD |

Pulmonary embolism fibrinolytics

When would you give fibrinolytics for a Pulmonary Embolism?

This Paucis Verbis card summarizes recommendations found in Circulation’s recently published Scientific Statement from the American Heart Association. Although it is rare to give fibrinolytics for a pulmonary embolism (PE) in the Emergency Department, it is important to remember when lytics are indicated.
