Normal arterial blood gas in a patient with saddle pulmonary artery embolus: diagnosis by transesophageal echocardiography



Normal arterial blood gas in a patient with saddle pulmonary artery embolus: diagnosis by transesophageal echocardiography



Journal of the National Medical Association 87(9): 717-719



This article describes a patient with a large, main pulmonary artery thromboembolus with normal arterial blood gas results, including normal alveolar-arterial oxygen gradient. The diagnosis was established using transesophageal echocardiography and confirmed with pulmonary angiography. The patient subsequently underwent anticoagulation and eventually was discharged without complications.
