Exercise testing plays a valuable role in evaluating a patient with pulmonary arterial hypertension, especially during the prognostic and diagnostic period. Join us for this webinar as we discuss cardio pulmonary testing, which is non-invasive and measures a patient’s cardiovascular and respiratory system when undergoing an exercise test. Cardiopulmonary stress tests, functional tests, as well as the administrative oversight needed to execute a successful exercise test will also be highlighted. This webinar will be accredited for nurses and respiratory therapists, but all medical professionals are welcome to participate.
