Antenatal pulmonary embolism diagnostics (APED) in the COVID-19 era

Our multispecialty team will utilize the Kaiser Permanente Northern California (KPNC) Perinatal Obstetrics Database to identify approximately 1,500 gravid patients undergoing pulmonary embolism (PE) diagnostics in the COVID-19 era. We will describe the patients undergoing diagnostic testing for PE, what clinical settings and specialists are involved, and the diagnostic strategies undertaken and their outcomes. Results of this large, contemporary community-based study will fill gaps in the literature and inform next steps within KPNC to improve our antenatal PE diagnostic guidelines and direct physician education efforts.
