The investigators calculated PESI scores for all patients.
The quick Sequential Organ Failure Assessment (qSOFA) score emerged as a tool to identify septic patients with a high risk of short-term death in the ED [5] and achieved greater prognostic accuracy.[6],[7] The three clinical criteria including respiration, stability of circulation, and status of consciousness from the qSOFA score were all included in the eleven independent predictors of 30-day mortality from the PE Severity Index (PESI).[8] However, the qSOFA score is more simple and familiar than the original PESI and simplified PESI in the ED.[9]

The Pulmonary Embolism Severity Index (PESI) and simplified PESI (sPESI) are among the most currently used and best validated clinical scores for prediction of 30-day mortality (8, 9).
These guidelines use the PESI score to define the intermediate risk strata.
Clinically, based on the classification of patients with acute PE based on early mortality risk, patients with high-risk PE (presenting with shock or hypotension) need to receive reperfusion therapy with thrombolysis, and low-risk (pulmonary embolism severity index [PESI] classes I-II or simplified pulmonary embolism severity index [sPESI] = 0) and intermediate-risk (PESI classes III-IV or sPESI [greater than or equal to] 1) PEs are usually treated with anticoagulation and thrombolysis therapies to reconstruct the normal pulmonary hemodynamics [6].
