Abstract

Pulmonary Embolism has been well established to be a potential life threatening medical emergency. Patients typically present with pleuritic chest pain with pressure, tachycardia, tachypnea, and desaturation of oxygen levels. We describe a case in which a COVID positive male presented to the ED via ambulance with saddle PE.
