  • Acute Massive Pulmonary Embolism

    Atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter and atrial tachycardia are commonly described supraventricular tachycardias in association with PE; however, there is scant description[pulsus.com] (blue discoloration, usually of the lips and fingers), collapse , and circulatory instability because of decreased blood flow through the lungs and into the left side of[en.wikipedia.org] Excluding two patients with tumor occlusion of the pulmonary arteries and three patients with chronic cor pulmonale from old pulmonary emboli, the survival rate was 50%.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

[7] Cor Pulmonale Presentation The clinical manifestations of cor pulmonale may be nonspecific.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Congestive Heart Failure

    ECG and telemetry revealed relatively slow supraventricular tachycardia, which did not trigger the alert, and catheter ablation successfully controlled the heart failure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Heart Failure and Cor Pulmonale Sections: Heart Failure, Cor Pulmonale, Further Readings. Topics Discussed: heart diseases.[web.archive.org] Cardiac causes include arrhythmias (tachycardia or bradycardia), structural heart disease, and myocardial dysfunction (systolic or diastolic).[emedicine.medscape.com]
