July 17, 2015 Heart Manual, it was felt there is a strong need to develop such a manual for those with pulmonary hypertension (PH) - the Pulmonary Hypertension Manual (PulHMan). This was developed through a qualitative methodology in order to ensure the needs of the patients were being met. The impact of the PulHMan on awareness about exercise-related benefits and PH are not known. Therefore the aim of this study was to assess the effects of the PulHMan on improving awareness among individuals with PH.]]> Arginine Therapy May Alleviate PH in Thalassemia Patients July 16, 2015 Researchers Uncover A New and Deeper Understanding of Lung Regeneration Pathways July 16, 2015 Determinants of an elevated pulmonary arterial pressure in patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension July 16, 2015 Fatal Pulmonary Embolism Case Report Highlights Need For More Attention To Factitious Fever Risks July 15, 2015 Pulmonologist Recommends PAH Patients Consult Doctors Before High Altitude Exposure July 15, 2015 Breath of life July 15, 2015
