ABSTRACT
The article presents information on a study which was conducted to find out whether a prognosis model can predict the mortality of patients with acute pulmonary embolism. Two separate cohort studies, one for derivation and one for validation were conducted. It was found after the study that it is possible for a prognosis model with demographic characteristics, comorbid conditions, and clinical findings to accurately identify patients at low risk for mortality.
