  • Pulmonary Embolism

    He does not report coughing, fever, or symptoms of DVT.[] Six ECG findings (heart rate 100 beats/min, S1Q3T3, complete RBBB, inverted T waves in V1-V4, ST elevation in aVR, and atrial fibrillation) had likelihood and ORs with lower-limit[] pulmonale in contrast to the well known cor pulmonale of chronic nature associated with progressive enlargement of the right side of the heart secondary to certain pulmonary[]
