Vey good lecture
By Jalil Z. on 22. July 2020 for Pediatric Pulmonary Embolism (PE)

Very good lecture. This allowed me to transfer my knowledge from the adult medicine to pediatrics regarding PE. However, I would have liked more info regarding the link with DVT and the clinical aspects of PE in children like clinical cases maybe and also a part about management. That being said I do understand it is not a typical pediatrics disease as it can be in adult medicine.
