Study days: General management of the breathless patient

Stand-alone study days for healthcare professionals, organised by Pulmonary Hypertension Association UK (PHA UK).

‘General Management of the Breathless Patient’, primarily aimed at healthcare professionals in primary or secondary care medicine, aims to provide attendees with an improved understanding of PAH and the issues patients face in day-to-day life.

The circulatory system
The heart and lungs
Pathology of PH and disease progression
The breathless patient
Epidemiology of PH

Forms of PH and clinical classification
