  • The frequency of PE in COVID patients attending Spanish and French ED is around 0.7%
  • The risk of PE in patients coming to ED is more than 7-fold higher in COVID than in non-COVID population.
  • However, once PE is suspected and CTPA is ordered, the rate of PE diagnosis is similar in COVID and non-COVID patients.
