[43] However, when a subset of 516 patients who were hemodynamically stable was assessed, central localization of emboli was found to be an independent mortality risk factor while distal localization was inversely associated with adverse events. Patients with acute pulmonary infarction have decreased excursion of the involved hemithorax, palpable or audible pleural friction rub, and even localized tenderness. [Medline]. 375 (6):534-44. Studies of patients who died unexpectedly from PE have revealed that often these individuals complained of nagging symptoms for weeks before death. The symptoms of pulmonary embolism are nonspecific; therefore, a high index of suspicion is required, particularly when a patient has risk factors for the condition. Although pulmonary embolism can arise from anywhere in the body, most commonly it arises from the calf veins. 2009 Mar-Apr.

Acute respiratory consequences of pulmonary embolism include the following: In patients with recognized pulmonary embolism, the incidence of physical signs has been reported as follows: Tachypnea (respiratory rate >20/min) - 96%, Fever (temperature >37.8°C [100.04ºF]) - 43%, Clinical signs and symptoms suggesting thrombophlebitis - 32%. Signs of pleural effusion, such as dullness to percussion and diminished breath sounds, may be present. 6 Treatment in the acute phase. [Medline]. Aujesky D, Roy PM, Verschuren F, et al. 369(15):1406-15. suggested that patients with COVID-19 pneumonia are at high risk for acute pulmonary embolism when D-dimer remarkably increases [5]; another study suggested that D-dimer values were significantly different between mild and severe disease [1].
