  • Distinguish between intermediate-high, intermediate-low, and low-risk pulmonary embolism, and apply this knowledge in the acute-phase management
  • Understand the modalities, benefits, indications and caveats of early reperfusion therapy: systemic full-dose thrombolysis, reduced-dose thrombolysis, surgical embolectomy, or catheter-directed treatment
  • Decide on the use vitamin K antagonists versus non-vitamin K-dependent oral anticoagulants (NOACs) in the treatment and secondary prophylaxis of PE, in relation to lytic or other reperfusion therapy
