Abstract

We present the case of a 44-year-old female who presented to the emergency department (ED) via emergency medical services with a chief concern of shortness of breath and was found to have bilateral pulmonary emboli (PE) while taking the direct oral anticoagulant dabigatran. The authors highlight the importance of considering PE even in patients who are on anticoagulation.
