The identification and diagnosis of pulmonary hypertension (PH) is often delayed for months to years after the onset of signs and symptoms. Once diagnosis is confirmed, evaluation of risk stratification, diagnostics, and disease burden is crucial for deciding the proper treatment pathway. Treatment for the condition often relies on many angles and many health care professionals, with interventions that may include vasodilators, catheterization, and, in more severe cases, lung transplants.

This presentation gives you the means to recognize and manage PH by covering the following topics:

  • Differences between PH and pulmonary arterial hypertension
  • Risk factors and signs/symptoms of PH
  • Diagnostic workup for PH
  • Multidisciplinary management of PH based on disease risk and progression

How It Works

  6. Please note that there is information covered in the video lectures that will not be on the handouts, so you must watch the video in its entirety. It is very important to spend time studying all PowerPoint handouts and to watch all course lecture(s) before attempting to take the required quiz.
  7. Each quiz includes 5 items to complete in 10 minutes. Participants have a maximum of 3 attempts to pass each exam with a score of 70% or higher.
  8. After successful completion of the quiz, participants must complete a Course Evaluation.
  9. Upon submission of the Course Evaluation, your Continuing Education Certificate will appear for you to print and/or save in PDF format. We strongly recommend that you print or save the certificate immediately, as your certificate will not be stored in your account indefinitely.
