Follow-up to "What would you do next?"

This was the patient with intracranial hemorrhage complicated by saddle embolus.
As everyone pointed out, this was a dificult situation. We had a filter placed:

She had decreased (though still present) radial pulse on the left and we found an occlusive L subclavian/L axillary arterial thrombus with collateral flow.
She developed decreased mentation and though her respiratory status remained the same. She herniated a few nights ago, was made DNR and expired.
