On the Cutting Edge of Pulmonary Hypertension Due to Interstitial Lung Disease: Diagnostic and Treatment Challenges

Monday, October 17, 2022

6:45 am – 7:45 am  CT



Interstitial Lung Disease is a broad term encompassing more than 200 diverse and distinct diseases characterized by inflammation or fibrosis of the pulmonary parenchyma, with reduction in pulmonary function. ILD symptoms are insidious and nonspecific, and despite the availability of diagnostic criteria and published resources, clinicians are challenged to correctly identify ILD in a timely manner. Furthermore, pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a complication of ILD, which is associated with decreased survival. Because progressive ILDs and associated comorbidities cause high mortality rates, the early and accurate identification of ILD is critical to achieve the best possible outcomes for patients. Join our panel of top experts for an interactive CME-certified symposium focused on the multidisciplinary care of patients with ILD, including strategies to identify PH-ILD early, and treatment options to improve patient outcomes.




This activity is intended for pulmonologists, rheumatologists, pathologists, and radiologists.


The goal of this activity is that learners will be better able to evaluate and select appropriate care plans for patients with PH-ILD. 


Upon completion of this activity, participants will have increased knowledge regarding the[list][item]Clinical impacts of early PH-ILD identification[item]Application of evidence-based strategies to identify PH-ILD early[item]Coordinated care for patients with ILD in a multidisciplinary environment[/list]
