Eligibility Criteria

Age 18+ · All Participants · 6 Total Inclusion Criteria

Mark “Yes” if the following statements are true for you:
The subject can walk for six minutes without difficulty, covering a distance of at least 150 meters and no more than 550 meters.
The patient's status with the World Health Organization is Class I, II, or III.
You must be at least 18 years old to use this service.
People with a documented mean pulmonary artery pressure of 25 mm Hg or more, and a lower pulmonary capillary wedge pressure (or left ventricular end-diastolic pressure) of 15 mm Hg or less, and a pulmonary vascular resistance of 3 WU or more, are classified as having Group 1 PAH, according to accepted international classification.
The diagnosis for PAH is idiopathic, meaning that the cause is unknown, heritable, meaning that it is passed down in families, drug- or toxin-induced, or associated with connective tissue disease.
