Hipertensión pulmonar (Parte 1)

PULMONARY HYPERTENSION UPDATE
Part 1: Classification & Diagnosis (Review JAMA)
PulmCCM. Feb 05, 2013. By Brett Ley, MD.

"Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is defined simply as a mean pulmonary artery pressure of 25 mmHg or greater. However, this entity encompasses a heterogeneous group of patients and underlying etiologies where accurate diagnosis, correct physiologic classification, and careful evaluation for right heart dysfunction are essential for appropriate management. Sanjiv J. Shah provides this nice overview in JAMA on the approach to diagnosis and treatment of PH summarized here. Clinical guidelines for the diagnosis and treatment of PH have been published in the US and Europe."
