Applying evidence to the diagnosis of a patient with suspected pulmonary embolism: how to use and evaluate a clinical prediction rule
Adler RS, McGinn TG

Using the scenario of a hospitalized patient with suspected pulmonary embolism (PE), the authors demonstrate how a clinical prediction rule (CPR) can help a clinician focus on the clinical features shown to be accurate in predicting the probability of PE. Also examined are the steps in appraising the evidence supporting a CPR and considerations for applying a CPR in practice.
