To evaluate a patient with a pulmonary embolus using the ECG score of Daniel et al.

Specialty:

Pulmonary Disease

Objective:

imaging studies, severity, prognosis, stage, differential diagnosis and mimics, red flags, selection

ICD-10:

Daniel et al developed a score based on changes in the 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) for evaluating a patient with a pulmonary embolus causing pulmonary hypertension. This can help distinguish patients with massive embolism resulting in severe pulmonary hypertension from those with less severe disease.
