Interprofessional Grand Rounds - Pulmonary Hypertension: A Patient's 43 Year Journey

Pulmonary Hypertension is poorly understood and can be a result of many other common chronic diseases. Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH) is one less common subgroup of pulmonary hypertension which can be challenging to diagnose and treat. There is no cure. Treatment options have increased exponentially in the last 10 years. Patients with PAH are more knowledgeable about their disease process than most healthcare providers. Many patients travel great distances and or move in order to be near physicians familiar with the treatment and management. Patient-run support groups exist throughout the county, including one here at D-H Lebanon.
