Answer

Thrombolytic treatment may be administered in acute PE associated with hemodynamic instability in patients who do not seem prone to bleeding, on the basis of the American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP) evidence-based guidelines regarding antithrombotic therapy and prevention of thrombosis.
