PORRES-AGUILAR, Mateo et al. Participation of pulmonary embolism response teams during the perioperative period. Arch. Cardiol. Méx. [online]. 2020, vol.90, n.3, pp.321-327.  Epub Oct 23, 2020. ISSN 1665-1731.

Acute pulmonary embolism represents a frequent cause of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality, only exceeded by acute coronary syndromes and cerebrovascular disease. The start-up and implementation of a designated pulmonary embolism response team is necessary to improve prognosis and minimize long-term sequelae in the subgroup of patients with significant pulmonary embolism. Herein, we describe and discuss an overview of the current and potential role of pulmonary embolism response teams, with a focus on the perioperative period.
