INTRODUCTION: Right heart thrombus in transit(RHT) in patients with an acute pulmonary embolism(PE) is rare(3-4%), but associated with increased rate of deterioration and high mortality(13-37%). We present a case where early recognition with point of care ultrasound(POCUS), and activation of Pulmonary Embolism Response Team(PERT) lead to successful management in a patient with RHT.
