ABSTRACT
The article discusses M. Monreal and colleagues' paper "Pulmonary embolism in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or congestive heart failure (CHF)." Monreal and colleagues looked at the diagnosis of pulmonary embolism in patients with COPD and CHF. The authors concluded that there are significant differences in the presentation of patients with pulmonary embolism who do and do not have coexistent CHF or COPD.
