REFERRAL
GUIDELINES

SUGGESTED ASSESSMENT PRIOR TO REFERRAL

  • We prefer all patients to have been seen by consultants in Cardiology or Respiratory prior to referral.
  • All patients should have an ECG, chest X-ray, lung function, transthoracic echocardiogram, VQ scan (and CTPA if the VQ scan is positive). We prefer to do cardiac catheterisation in Glasgow. Please do not delay referrals for extensive investigation if it is clear that PAH is the dominant problem.
  • Please include copies of reports (especially the echocardiogram) with the referral.
