This is the first of a 2-part podcast, and it is long!
This podcast was inspired by Dr Anand Senthi – a Snr Registrar in Emergency Medicine in Perth, W. Australia.
Anand gave an awesome and entertaining talk at the ACEM Winter Symposium in Broome back in June – and I have been wanting to get him onto the podcast ever since.
This is all about the diagnostic and prognostic approach to the low-risk ?PE patients in the Emergency department. To be clear – we are discussing patients who have low-risk based on Clinical Gestalt, Well’s score or PERC negative. These are the patients at the ground level of the “PE Pyramid”.
Now I know – for many of you there is not too much new in this podcast – but just wait! IN the next instalment Anand delivers his take on the other side of the coin – the prognostication and risk side of the investigation and treatment of PE. Stay tuned – it is a bit new and might change the way you do business in your ED. Will release it later this week after you have digested part 1!
