The literature review has been published online through The Journal of Emergency Medicine. According to Dr. Pourmand, "Studies reporting the prevalence of Pulmonary Embolism (PE) during Acute Exacerbation Of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (AE-COPD) vary considerably in their methods and results. Because of the relatively high prevalence of PE during AE-COPD, it is important for providers to be aware of this linkage between the two conditions." Hannah Robinson, a co-author, is currently a student at George Washington.
The review has already been referenced in an article in Pulmonology Advisor.
