Adult Congenital Heart Disease, Blood Disorders, and Liver Disease with PH
The goal of this session is to address the clinical management approaches of three different disorders that can be associated with pulmonary artery hypertension (PAH).
PH from Left Heart Dysfunction- The Great Pretender
The goal of this session is to introduce the concept of PH in the setting of left heart disease, particularly associated with diastolic dysfunction of the left ventricle. We will discuss the typical patient profile seen with this condition, which is one of the most common causes of PH.
PH Associated with Another Condition- Coping with a Second Illness
As treatments for PH allow patients to enjoy a longer life, patients with PH are then susceptible to the problems of 'regular' people as they age. Explore problems like diabetes, chronic kidney disease, and coronary artery disease as panelists answer questions from the audience.
Connective Tissue Diseases and PH
This session will describe the spectrum of connective tissue disease and define the different types of pulmonary hypertension (PH) encountered. The focus of discussion will be on systemic sclerosis (scleroderma).
Familial Genetics and PAH (2016)
This session discusses what is known about the inheritance of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), with a special emphasis on familial PAH, which is a type of heritable PAH (HPAH). Learn more on how it can be inherited and wha the associated risks, benefits, and limitations of genetic testing are in relation to this disease.
WHO 3: Lung Diseases
The goal of this session is to discuss how lung diseases are associated with pulmonary hypertension (PH). Learn more about how various forms of lung disease can cause PH and how they should be evaluated and treated.
Diagnosing PH- Is your PH diagnosed correctly?
This session reviews the current classification/definitions of PH, as well as standard testing methods used to fully diagnose patients.
