Pulmonary Hypertension Week at the ATS 2012

As part of "Pulmonary Hypertension Week at the ATS" and in conjunction with ATS PAR partner the Pulmonary Hypertension Association (PHA), the ATS hosted a live webinar on Thursday, November 29, 2012 at 2:00 pm ET.

The webinar talks were presented by Lynn Brown, MD, PhD of the University of Utah and Peter Leary, MD of the University of Washington.

Both presenters discussed the importance of early diagnosis and how to identify patients early on.  Dr. Brown, chair of the Pulmonary Hypertension Association's new early diagnosis campaign, SOMETIMES IT'S PH, also discussed the campaign's plans to communicate with primary and specialty care providers and to educate them about suspecting PH, screening for it and teaming up with PH specialists to provide optimum care. Dr. Leary discussed screening as a potential tool for early diagnosis of PH.
