On March 30, 2021, a 53-year-old man was hospitalized, complaining of breath shortness, chest pain, and pain in his right leg from 2 weeks ago when he went mountain climbing. His symptoms did not improve, and his shortness of breath worsened. Therefore, he went to a hospital and was hospitalized to investigate the possibility of Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) and Pulmonary Thromboembolism (PTE) further. At admission, O2 sat was 91, followed by Respiratory Rate (RR) of 18 and White Blood Cell (WBC) of 9.6. The patient was admitted to Coronary Care Unite (CCU), and color Doppler sonography, echocardiography, and pulmonary angiography were conducted.
