SESSION TITLE: Student/Resident Case Report Poster - Critical Care IV

SESSION TYPE: Student/Resident Case Report Poster

PRESENTED ON: Tuesday, October 25, 2016 at 01:30 PM - 02:30 PM

Signs and symptoms of acute right heart failure are often non-specific and vary according to the precipitating cause. We present a case of a middle-aged female, whose initial presentation of evolving liver failure and coagulopathy led to an extensive work up to evaluate the etiology, before the diagnosis of PE was considered as the primary cause of evolving multi-organ failure.
