Ups and Downs of Living with PAH

June 26, 2010 

Both patients with PAH and their family members often describe the experience of living with PAH as being akin to a roller coaster: Lots of ups and downs. How do we ride this coaster without getting derailed? This session will focus on strategies for maintaining physical and emotional well-being in the context of pulmonary hypertension.
