SESSION TYPE: Original Investigation Poster

PRESENTED ON: Wednesday, October 26, 2016 at 01:30 PM - 02:30 PM

PURPOSE: Little is known about the utility of physical examination (PE) findings in evaluating patients with suspected moderate or severe pulmonary hypertension (PH) in the modern era. Our previous work has shown that PE is not adequate for excluding or confirming PH using the threshold of mean pulmonary arterial pressure (mPAP) ≥ 25 mmHg. We aimed to determine the diagnostic utility of commonly referenced physical exam findings for detecting moderate-severe PH (mPAP ≥ 35 mmHg).
