This Healthy Body, Healthy Mind video from Information Television Network, talks about symptoms and the diagnosis process for pulmonary hypertension and how treatment for the disease has improved over the last two decades.
Dr. Scott McFarland talks about the new treatments and options available to people who have pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). At one time, the only hope for PAH patients was a lung transplant, now there are many different treatments and intravenous, oral and inhaled medications that can give patients hope and a better quality of life. In addition to medication, exercise and lifestyle changes are now seen as paramount as ongoing treatment and PAHs undergo pulmonary rehabilitation.
The film also talks about the importance of clinical trials for patients to further enhance the treatments for pulmonary hypertension.
