Pulmonary hypertension care team at The Christ Hospital Health Network
Pulmonary hypertension requires a team approach to care. Experts at The Christ Hospital who may be involved in your care and treatment include:
Cardiologists are an essential part of your care team because they interpret heart test results and monitor heart function.
Depending on a patient's needs, other practitioners and specialists may be part of the team.
Pharmacists make sure the medications you need for your pulmonary hypertension are on hand for you and the team.
Nurse practitioners (NPs) provide follow-up and day-to-day care.
You may see respiratory therapists (RTs) during the course of your treatment, since these experts monitor oxygen levels.
Nutritionists can prescribe low-sodium diets to help lower fluid retention, if needed.
