SuspectPH is an online platform designed to support Australian healthcare professionals (HCPs) in referring patients with suspected pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) to PH expert centres for diagnosis and treatment.
The platform provides you with guidance on raising the suspicion of PH and assists in the development of complete referral information for sending appropriate patients to a PH expert centre for definitive diagnosis of PAH. SuspectPH is only recommended for use by physicians familiar with diagnostic methods such as transthoracic echocardiography.
Due to the haemodynamic definitions of PAH, it is only possible to make a definitive diagnosis in a PH expert centre using right heart catheterisation. SuspectPH is not a diagnostic tool and does not replace expert clinical judgement or necessary procedures. It is only intended to support the referral process for suspected PAH patients.
Janssen-Cilag Pty Ltd is not responsible for any clinical deterioration, misdiagnosis, injury or death that may arise as a result of use of this platform.
