Targeted heart / vci emergency ultrasound (ER): wide right system, D-shape septum, Mc cullen sign +, empty left ventricle with moderate Left ventricular failure (LVF), VCI wide, does not collapse. No pericardial fluid. Conclusion: clear signs of legal tax with positive mc cullen sign, strong suspicion of obstructive shock due to massive pulmonary embolism. Electrocardiogram (ECG): SR 80 / min, normal cardiac axis, normal conductances, minimum segment (ST) depressions in I, V5-V6, no segment (ST) elevations, normal T-waves. After one-time filling (started from ambulance) no improvement, hemodynamics. With clear signs of legal tax on targeted emergency ultrasound with high suspicion of obstructive shock pulmonary embolism now no longer filled (due to worsening of circulatory situation in case of obstruction of the right system). Considering that it is too unstable for Computed tomography (CT) hemodynamically, consult IC about yes / no thrombolysis given deep shock and clear desire not to resuscitate want to become. Decided after assessment by intensivis. The patient did not have previous COVID-19 infection. The patient died on 15Mar2021 due to lung embolism. It was not reported if an autopsy was performed.
