Answer

Diagnostic algorithms can help in completing a thorough workup. In 2004, the American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP) published a consensus statement with diagnostic and treatment recommendations. [15, 16] In 2009, the American Heart Association (AHA) and the American College of Cardiology (ACC) published a joint guideline that provides extensive coverage of PAH diagnosis and management.
