Abstract

Prevalence of pulmonary thromboembolism (PTE) is very high when we compare the coronavirus disease 2019 positive patients with the other patients who are admitted in intensive care unit for other different infection. Thorough evaluation of the different causative factors for PTE should be better evaluated and prevention can be tried accordingly. Incidence of subclinical PTE that can give rise to future cardiac disease needs to be studied and plan of action can be done accordingly. Newer modalities of detecting PTE using non-invasive or simple invasive techniques need to be investigated to cope up in pandemic situation.
