This live CME activity will provide pulmonologists, cardiologists, and other health care providers the opportunity to learn about the current landscape in PAH treatment, based on the most recent clinical updates and newly approved therapies, to improve patient survival. The symposium’s focus is to provide education related to the diagnostic procedures, proper treatment, and timing of referral to pulmonary hypertension centers to physicians who treat patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension. Our invited faculty will incorporate case-based discussion with Q&A to provide their experience on the complexity of PAH diagnosis, management, and successful referral.

  3. Identify appropriate treatment choices based on available evidence, particularly for newly approved PAH pharmacologic therapies.
