    Abstract:

    An otherwise healthy 48-year-old woman presented in respiratory extremis from massive pulmonary embolism and promptly arrested. She underwent open-chest cardiopulmonary resuscitation followed by portable partial cardiopulmonary bypass and embolectomy but could not be resuscitated. Massive pulmonary embolism is frequently a desperate situation, but aggressive therapy with thrombolysis or embolectomy (in patients with contraindications to thrombolysis) may be lifesaving.
