Practical tools for PAH management

Formal risk assessment is integral to PAH management1,2

Your patient’s risk status today impacts their tomorrow. The lower your patient’s risk status, the higher their chance of survival over the next 5 years.2-6 Current treatment guidelines recommend that if your patient is not at low-risk status, it may be time to add an additional PAH medication. Even if your patient’s functional status has not declined, you may be able to help them to improve.1,2

United Therapeutics provides a range of validated risk calculator resources to help you integrate formal risk calculation into your clinical practice.
