Massive Pulmonary embolism with Severe Hypoxemia in Shock Pulmonary embolism is not disease. Its a complication of some underlying venous thrombosis. Complete history and examination required and workup should be done including antithrombin III, Protein C, protein S, lupus anticoagulant, Homocysteine. Rx Supportive treatment Anticoagulation Thrombolysis Surgical embolectomy

A case ideally to be treated in ICU settings with emergency intensive care . Positive findings with inference D- Dimer levels are significantly raised indicative of pulmonary embolism . Trop - T is significantly raised indicative of Acute.M.I .Also ECG is indicative of Acute.M.I with arrhythmia. Also Echo is indicative of severely decreased LVEF - 20 % with global ischemia of LAD and LAD territory- again confirming acute M.I . S.urea and creatinine are raised as part of acute kidney compromise due to BP- 80 / 60 . ABG studies are also not favorable with hypokalemia , hypernatremia, increases chloride levels , significantly decreased PO2 , increased PCO2 and alkalosis. Increased ammonia levels again indicative of severe heart failure and a poor prognostic factor. Also a high leukocytosis indicative of septicemia.. So Diagnosis is Acute MI with CCF with pulmonary embolism with acute renal failure with septicemia with hypokalemia and hyponatremia.with alkalosis. Management- Oxygen support with mask . Thrombolysis with ECG monitoring. Maintaining IV line - correction of hypokalemia,hypernatremia, hypotension Monitoring urine output , Parenteral antibiotics- 3rd generation cephalosporins

Pulmonary embolism as D dimer high arterial flutter causing Embolism Don't interpretation as MI till CT angio or CAG confirms As ECG showing S1Q3T3 pattern only with atrial flutter Primary thromboembeloctomy if detected in CT angio Need diuretic & Heparanie infusion monitor PT INR Noradrinaline / Dobutamine inotropic support As count is on higher start antibiotics
