Stanford University

Presented ByKristina Kudelko, MD

Pulmonary hypertension still has a horrible prognosis. It’s a progressive disease with no cure. We are much better at identifying and treating it these days, but with the best of therapies, there is at best a 70 percent survival rate at five years. That’s hard. And it affects a lot of young women.

Desired Outcomes:

  • describe front-line pulmonary hypertension (PH) diagnostic testing
  • interpret the importance of accurate phenotyping of the PH patient
  • describe the three main class of PH therapy
  • recognize the need for prompt referral to PH centers in specific cases
