Italian Pulmonary Embolism Registry - IPER (IPER)
Pulmonary embolism is a complex disease, with a highly variable clincal presentation. Diagnosis starts with clinical probability assessment mainly based on medical history and rapidly available clinical data. Pulmonary embolism can be managed by emergency department, cardiology, pneumology geriatrics or internal medicine physicians. Thus, initial clinical management can varies based on the attitude of the attending physician.
Diagnosis is a crucial point as it can influence short term mortality.
The registry has 3 main objectives:
- educational objective,
- improvement in the knowledge of epidemiology, management and outcome of acute pulmonary embolism in Italy
