FDA Approved Tool to Diagnose Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension

PAH is the most serious form of the five recognized groups of pulmonary hypertension. Most patients with PAH are diagnosed too late for treatment to be fully effective. “With increasing availability of effective therapies, and evidence-based treatment guidelines recommending frequent monitoring, functional tests should prove invaluable for managing patients with PAH.”
