Dr. Jason Weatherald, a pulmonologist at the University of Alberta, discusses a study on the socioeconomic burden of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) in Canada. The study, conducted through PHA Canada, surveyed PAH patients and their caregivers to understand how the disease affects their ability to work and perform daily activities. The results showed that a significant number of PAH patients were unable to work or had limited career options due to the disease. The study also highlighted the impact of PAH on caregivers, with many having to assist patients with daily activities. The findings emphasize the need for healthcare professionals to discuss the implications of PAH on patients' ability to work and access support.
