Program Description

Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a chronic, progressive form of pulmonary hypertension (PH) that ultimately leads to right-sided heart failure and premature death. Though management has greatly advanced over the past 2 decades, it varies according to etiology, functional class, hemodynamic parameters, and other clinical factors. Evidence-based strategies for combination therapy and timely escalation of treatment that is based on risk stratification and clinical response have modernized the treatment of PAH.

In this interactive CME-certified symposium, top experts will focus on the latest guideline updates and strategies for improving early diagnosis and treatment, with the goal of delaying disease progression and improving outcomes.
