Summary

Exercise testing plays a valuable role in evaluating a patient with pulmonary arterial hypertension, especially during the prognostic and diagnostic period.

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.
