Clinical Management of Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension is a pocket-sized handbook designed to be carried by medical residents and fellows or kept on the desktop of chest physicians and other physicians involved in diagnosis and treatment. It provides a brief overview of the all the major topics of PH, with pertinent figures, a short list of highly selected references and a summary of key points at the end of each chapter. It has been specifically designed to allow the busy practitioner to quickly access key current information regarding the diagnosis and management of PH. All presently approved medications are discussed along with the most recent treatment guidelines published within the last year by the WHO and the ACCP.

The rapid expansion of medical treatments for PAH has not only added to the complexity of managing this challenging disease but has greatly enhanced the awareness of pulmonary vascular disease in general. Chest physicians, internists, and family physicians are increasingly being asked to evaluate elevated pulmonary artery pressure found on echo and distinguish PAH from PH that is associated with chronic heart failure and lung disease. This handbook provides a quick and easy to use reference for the management of PAH that we anticipate will be quite popular with both young and experienced practitioners.
