SGEM#126: Take me to the Rivaroxaban – Outpatient treatment of VTE

Guest Skeptic: Dr. Jeffrey Kline (@klinelab) is the Vice Chair of Research in Emergency Medicine and a professor of physiology, Indiana University School of Medicine. Most of you probably know him as the origin of the PERC Rule.  His diagnostic research interests focus on human affect analysis, pretest probability and capnography to reduce medical imaging. His human treatment research includes randomized trials of fibrinolysis and inhaled nitric oxide. His laboratory work focuses on mechanisms and treatment of acute pulmonary hypertension from pulmonary embolism, animal models of pulmonary embolism, and nanoparticle-delivered plasmin for clot lysis.
