Acute cor pulmonale (ACP) is common in severe ARDS patients and is always ignored.[34] The prevalence rate of echocardiographically evident ACP in ARDS ranges from 22.0% to 50.0%.[35] Treatment of ACP in ARDS includes optimization of right ventricle preload and afterload; increased right ventricle contractility, pulmonary vasodilators, and lung protective ventilation are the important methods for reducing right ventricle afterload.

With massive PE, patients often present with signs and symptoms of acute cor pulmonale, that is, syncope, cardiac arrest, or sudden death [5, 10].
Therefore, the use of TTE which currently has greater availability and is less invasive in the operating room for diagnosis and monitoring of the response to hemodynamic intervention in patients with suspected acute cor pulmonale is underappreciated by anesthesiologists.
Acute cor pulmonale (ACP) is a form of RVD due to an acute increase in RV afterload.

Some studies suggest that PH may cause acute cor pulmonale (ACP) in patients with ARDS.
She was diagnosed acute cor pulmonale because of doppler echocardiography.
Background: Despite airway pressure limitation, acute cor pulmonale persists in a minority of ARDS patients.
The researchers suggested that syncope should be evaluated to rule out a PE when it occurs in people with a predisposition for deep vein thrombosis; when it occurs with symptoms suggestive of a PE, such as chest pain, hemoptysis, or dyspnea with tachycardia; and when it is accompanied by hypotension, tachycardia or a transient bradyarrythmia, or acute cor pulmonale. Cor pulmonale results in the occlusion of 60%-75% of the pulmonary circulation, causing shock, syncope, or sudden death (Koutkia & Wachtel, 1999).
