CME Available! “Is It PAH or PH Due to Lung Disease and/or Chronic Hypoxia?”

It can be very challenging to differentiate between WHO Class 1 Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension and WHO Class 3 Pulmonary Hypertension due to Lung Disease or Chronic Hypoxia. Despite similar clinical manifestations, these two conditions are characterized by different hemodynamic definitions and etiologies. Through the use of two case studies, clinicians can learn about the diagnosis and management of PAH versus PH due to lung disease or chronic hypoxia. View the full CME information here.
