Jeffrey Fineman


In this World Shared Practice Forum video, Dr. Jeffrey Fineman speaks about the classification and epidemiology of pediatric pulmonary disease. He details the natural history of pulmonary hypertension associated with congenital heart disease, reviews evidence proving that it is an endothelial-based disease (at least initially), and outlines current and future research involving the hemodynamic forces associated with different congenital heart disease. Upon viewing this presentation, participants will be able to:  

• Characterize pediatric pulmonary hypertension

• Identify the epidemiology of the disease

• Understand the role of the endothelial cell in the disease

• Speak about current and future research into influencing hemodynamic forces associated with different congenital heart diseases.
