Today's PH fact is:
The very first FDA approved drug to treat pulmonary hypertension was Flolan in 1995. Flolan is a continuous IV treatment. Flolan involves mixing the med and using ice packs to keep it cold. Flolan is often prescribed if the patient is very ill after being diagnosed, or if other PH meds have been tried and haven't worked well enough. For many, Flolan is a life-saving drug!!
