Is Flolan still the gold standard? This session will review the pharmacology of Flolan, as well as its benefits and disadvantages. Many centers believe there is still an important role for Flolan, especially in the most ill, class IV patients. Flolan has some inherent difficulties associated with administration, especially it's very short half life and instability at room temperature. This session will review these and other important properties as well as practical management and dosing guidelines.
