Abstract

Despite better diagnostic and therapeutic possibilities, acute pulmonary embolism (APE) remains significant clinical problem. Many tests, including laboratory and visualizing are used to assess the prognosis. One of the most accessible and cheapest is unfortunately often omitted. This is the electrocardiogram (ECG). In the presented case we remind electrocardiographic signs of APE, we show possibility of indirect risk stratification based on ECG in patients with APE and, we would like to put the attention on changes in APE treatment guidelines.
