Tips & Tricks

Tips and Tricks, a treasure-trove of useful information

As every person with pulmonary hypertension (PH or PAH) comes to realize, there's a lot to learn. There's the disease itself to sort out - a disease few people understand - and then there are new treatments to consider, doctors to visit, waxing and waning energy levels to deal with, families to nurture and chores and jobs to do. For some of us there is new equipment to learn how to use: Flolan pumps, Hickman lines, oxygen tanks, scooters. It's a lot to deal with.

If you've found a way to connect with other PH’ers along the way, you're probably sharing information and tips for making life a little easier and know how wonderful a resource you have. We'd like to make our tips section a place for you to learn even more, a place to share practical and useful tips with others. We hope you'll help us make this a great resource for patients and family members alike by sharing what you know with others.

We think you will find some very useful information within the sections on the left, but we’re always willing to add more sections as we get new tips. If you have some practical advice to share, please send your tip(s) here.
