Conference: 2013 PH Professional Network Symposium

Release Date: 09.28.2013

Presentation Type: Breakout Sessions

Pulmonary hypertension is difficult enough, but when caused by and/ or compounded by methamphetamine abuse, these can prove to be our most challenging, heartbreaking, frustrating and even successful cases. With the clinical foundation of how stimulant use is tied to PH, cases will be presented for discussion around the unique needs, treatment considerations, coordination of care and multi-disciplinary approaches needed for this intense PH patient population.
