During PCE's recent Pulmonary Bootcamp, attendees had the chance to ask our expert faculty a variety of questions related to the topic of connective tissue disease in pulmonary arterial hypertension (CTD-PAH). Here, Kristin B. Highland, MD, MSCR, director of the Rheumatic Lung Disease Program at Cleveland Clinic, and Martha Kingman, FNP-C, DNP, advanced practice provider in the Pulmonary Hypertension Clinic at University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in Dallas, provide answers to the questions addressed during the live presentation.
