Computerized tomographic angiography or ventilation perfusion scan for pregnant patients suspected of pulmonary embolism. by Kristina Kenney( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pulmonary embolism can be a fatal condition in which a rapid diagnosis is essential. The purpose of this review is to assess which imaging modality is most effective in the rapid diagnosis of pulmonary embolism in pregnant women. This was a retrospective review of sixteen scholarly research articles; some were quantitative while others were qualitative. The subject matter spanned from comparison of computerized tomographic angiography and ventilation perfusion scans in pregnancy, ventilation perfusion in pregnancy, venous thromboembolism in pregnancy leading to pulmonary embolism, radiation exposure to fetus with computerized tomography of the chest, and similar comparisons. Several articles reviewed were unfounded or inconclusive in which modality was preferred to diagnose pulmonary embolism in pregnant women. Ventilation perfusion scan was found to effectively rule out pulmonary embolism. Computerized tomographic angiography was found to be the preferred, most effective imaging modality in diagnosing pulmonary embolism in pregnant women. A new process was devised for the treatment of pregnant patients suspected of pulmonary embolism. This process establishes computerized tomographic angiography to be ordered as well as pre-tests to be completed. A plan for educating staff along with post-test assessments and chart audits to confirm compliance and retention of information on the new process. Lastly, a process for project evaluation is outlined
