Table 1 Patients’ characteristics and diagnostic correspondence between Endobronchial Ultrasound (EBUS) and Computed tomography pulmonary angiography (CTPA)

From: Endobronchial ultrasound is feasible and safe to diagnose pulmonary embolism in non-transportable SARS-CoV-2 ARDS patients requiring extracorporeal lung support

Patient age (years old) Ventilator settings, PEEP (cmH2O) FiO2 EBUS duration (min) Lowest SpO2 during EBUS Vt before EBUS (mL) Vt during EBUS (mL) CTPA performed before or after EBUS Time between EBUS-CTPA (days) Location of PE on EBUS Location of PE on CTPA Agreement EBUS-CTPA
