Our members benefited from a valuable lecture on echo–estimated pulmonary hypertension on June 3rd at Fleming’s Steakhouse restaurant in Birmingham. The guest educator Dr. Ghulaim Saydain, assistant professor of Internal medicine Pulmonary Critical care & Sleep Division Director, Pulmonary Hypertension Program in Wayne State University, presented a great lecture that covered various aspects on the topic. Dr. Saydain identified sources of error in the echo-estimate of right ventricular systolic or pulmonary arterial pressure, and talked about examining the echo report and the clinical co-morbidities for other features that suggest HFpEF as opposed to pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). Dr. Saydain also enlightened attendees on recognition of initial treatment failure as an indication for early referral and right heart catheterization by a team experienced in PAH patient management. The attendees also enjoyed a great dinner at Fleming’s Steakhouse.
