Alternative Medicine

We know that vasodilator treatment improves exercise capacity and symptoms in patients with pulmonary hypertension. Besides medical treatments and modifications to lifestyle, there are several nutritional and dietary supplements on the market that claim to reduce leg swelling, enhance breathing and increase exercise capacity in people with PH and heart failure. This session will help raise greater awareness about various nutritional, herbal and dietary supplements in the context of PH.
