Now online, Volume 18, Issue 2 of Advances in Pulmonary Hypertension, official journal of the Pulmonary Hypertension Association, is dedicated to the role of exercise in pulmonary hypertension (PH). “Exercise and PH: Nuts, Bolts and Clinical Uses” is guest edited by Ronald J. Oudiz, M.D., Director of the Liu Center for Pulmonary Hypertension at UCLA Medical Center in Torrance, Calif.
The latest issue of Advances features articles on the pathophysiological mechanisms that are involved with exercise intolerance in pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), and the relevance for clinical practice and future outcomes, how exercise testing (all types) is performed, the important role exercise has for PH patients, the role of exercise in clinical trials and clinical practice, and the practical aspects of pulmonary rehabilitation for patients.
Advances in Pulmonary Hypertension Editor-in-Chief Deborah J. Levine, M.D., noted in the “Editor’s Memo” that the lack of a recent update on this important topic inspired the issue theme: “As guest editor, Dr. Oudiz took on this challenging issue and he has assembled a group of international experts to discuss multiple topics. The issue he and the authors have together created is an outstanding educational resource and the most up-to-date reference on this subject.”
