If you were hoping to brush up on your knowledge about pulmonary hypertension (PH) at this year’s BSEcho, you’re in luck!

In addition to the excellent scientific sessions about PH presented at the conference, the Janssen medical booth will host some useful resources to support your clinical practice. PH is a progressive, potentially fatal disease that can significantly affect patients’ lives and an echo can be the key to identifying these patients early.1–3

If you want to learn more about assessing PH using echo, take a look at the animation How to use echocardiography to assess the probability of pulmonary hypertension, presented by Professor Simon Gibbs (Imperial College London). It breaks down the assessment process into three easy-to-follow steps and explains probability scoring in detail.

The EchoRight™ app allows you to test your skills and knowledge about PH using real-world cases. It was developed in collaboration with a Scientific Committee who were each paid an honorarium by Janssen and is based on 2015 European Society of Cardiology (ESC)/European Respiratory Society (ERS) guidelines. The app is provided by Janssen-Cilag Ltd to provide information for healthcare providers. You can find out more about the app at the Janssen booth!

Want to learn more about pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH)? Check out the Act on PAH website. It hosts numerous useful resources for healthcare professionals involved in the identification and referral of patients with PAH.

In particular, the on-demand webinar ‘Echo: how clear is the picture in pulmonary hypertension?’ with Dr Daniel Augustine (Consultant Cardiologist, Royal United Hospitals Bath NHS Foundation Trust) and Cathy West (Principal Echocardiographer, Royal Brompton Hospital) might interest you. The two experts discuss the importance and limitations of echo, tips and tricks for identifying signs of PH, real-world data from a PH centre and clinical cases.

This year’s virtual BSEcho promises to host some fascinating scientific sessions with plenty of discussions. We are looking forward to seeing you at the Janssen booth and discussing PH with you!
