That was a fantastic presentation and explanation. I'm not a doctor or medical professional. I'm a 76 years old retiree who obtained a degree in Chemical Engineering but never worked as a chemical engineer. I found this presentation very easy to follow along and many times saw many analogies and applications of fundamental engineering science to the diagnosis of PE in this patient.

This lecture uses a real case of Pulmonary Embolus to review the clinical presentation of PE and discuss appropriate treatments.

In this video we will discuss about:

1.A case of a trainer with patellar injury leading to pulmonary embolism.

2.Signs and symptoms of acute pulmonary embolism.

3.Pulse oximetry,underlying technique and limitation.

4.Wells score system for DVT/PE prediction.

5.Haemodynamic stability or unstabilty of embolus.

6.Hampton's hump and Wastermark sign.

7.Modalities for pulmonary embolus diagnosis.

8.Treatment rationale and contraindications.
