Key Words Pulmonary embolism; Guidelines; Diagnosis; Treatment; D-dimers; Pregnancy
Core Tip We discuss the basic changes between the recent guidelines published in August 2019 by the European Society of Cardiology in collaboration with the European Respiratory Society regarding the diagnosis and management of pulmonary embolism (PE) and the previous guidelines that were published in 2014. The use of age-specific cut-off levels of D-dimers, detailed recommendations for risk stratification and the possibility of outpatient management are some of the key changes. Knowledge and adherence to these new guidelines will improve the outcome of patients with PE.
