Use a goal-oriented approach when assessing patients like Patricia

At Patricia’s last visit, she complained of gradually increasing shortness of breath in her daily routine, followed by chest pain and fatigue. Her symptoms have gradually worsened.

Today’s visit: Tests confirmed that her PAH has not yet improved, therefore you decide to initiate Adempas. You discuss with her how to initiate Adempas therapy in the context of her current medical treatment. Learn more here.

6MWD=6-minute walk distance; ERA=endothelin receptor antagonist; FC=functional class; NT-proBNP=N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide; PAH=pulmonary arterial hypertension; PH=pulmonary hypertension; PVR=pulmonary vascular resistance; WHO=World Health Organization
