In this post I link to and excerpt from The Curbsiders’ [Link is to the complete episode list] #80: Pulmonary Hypertension, freeways, and cows in heart failure. JANUARY 29, 2018 By MATTHEW WATTO, MD.
Note to myself: I had a complete transcript made of this podcast. Obviously, I can’t share it
online. The show notes are, as always, outstanding, but I wanted the complete transcript as Dr. Ryan shares so many awesome pearls on pulmonary hypertension.
All that follows is from the above awesome resource.
Pulmonary hypertension deconstructed with clinical pearls from cardiologist, John J. Ryan MD, FACC, FAHA, Director of University of Utah Pulmonary Hypertension Center. We discuss classification, diagnosis/differentiation, initial workup, additional testing, echo findings, how to counsel patients with pulmonary hypertension, and why cows never get ankle edema!
Written and produced by: Jordana Kozupsky, NP and Matthew Watto, MD
The above infographic is from The Curbsiders show notes. It is great review of the 2015 ESC/ERS Guidelines for the diagnosis and treatment of pulmonary hypertension. Every clinician should review this clear and outstanding resource.
