Help Ensure Safe Transitions of Care for Pulmonary Hypertension Patients
It's getting harder to keep up with medications for pulmonary hypertension...especially with more patients on combination therapy.
Help ensure safe transitions of care for these patients.
Continue most meds on admission. Avoid interruptions in prostacyclin therapy...especially IV epoprostenol (Flolan, Veletri, etc) and treprostinil (Remodulin) continuous infusions. Abruptly stopping these can lead to life-threatening rebound pulmonary hypertension.
