Preparing for Your Visit
Your first visit to the pulmonary hypertension clinic will take at least one hour, but perhaps multiple hours if other testing will be performed. You will meet multiple members of the pulmonary hypertension team including a doctor, nurse practitioner, respiratory therapist, pharmacist and registered nurse. Your medical history and prescription medications will be reviewed.
Tips to Prepare for Your Clinic Visit:
- Take a picture or bring all medication bottles, prescriptions and over the counter medications you use.
- Wear comfortable foot wear, as a walking oxygen test will be performed. Blood work will likely be obtained at the outpatient lab after the office visit.
