Pulmonary Embolism in Patients Hospitalized for Exacerbated COPD and Wheezing

Nearly 30% of exacerbated chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) has no clear aetiology. In this subgroup of patients admitted for COPD exacerbation, available information on the prevalence of pulmonary embolism (PE) remains scarce and conflicting with data ranging from 0% to 29%. Because PE remains a potentially lethal disease with clinical symptoms that can mimic exacerbated COPD (increased dyspnoea, tachycardia, hypoxemia and/ or right-sided heart failure) and because Wells and/or Geneva scores are (usually) intermediate in exacerbated COPD patients, this issue is of great importance.
