Pulmonary Hypertension And RV Failure – Help From Drs. Wilcox and Weingart

Dr. Weingart, EMCrit, interviews Dr. Susan Wilcox about pulmonary hypertension and right ventricular failure in Podcast 181 – Pulmonary Hypertension and Right Ventricular Failure with Dr. Susan Wilcox[Link is to the show notes and podcast]. Published September 5, 2016 by Scott Weingart

So first listen to the podcast:

Then read the very clear and helpful Ann Emerg Med 2015;66(6):619 by Susan R. Wilcox, MD, Pulmonary Hypertension and Right Ventricular Failure in Emergency Medicine [Link is to the pdf and is courtesy of EMCrit].

And then carefully review the excellent show notes.

[Note to myself] If you haven’t reviewed the podcast and Dr. Wilcox’s article recently and don’t have a lot of time but need a refresher, read the outstanding show notes and the outstanding reader commentaries.
