Emergency Situations and Primary Care Issues

June 23, 2012

In certain situations pulmonary hypertension can become an emergency, either because of progression of the underlying disease, due to some superimposed complication, such as a blood clot or pneumonia, or because of a complication of a medication or the delivery system. Our focus will be on what caused the emergency and what should be done about it—who to call, what immediate measure to take and where to go.
