of our patients, who risk their well-being as volunteer participants in clinical studies. Met h o d s Th e goal of this CHEST guideline project was to produce clinically relevant and useful recommendations on medical therapies for PAH for clinicians who treat adult patients with PAH.

In 2011, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) released new guideline (...) It is a critical responsibility of the clinician to ensure that an accurate diagnosis is established, and readers are referred to previously published guidelines by the American College of Chest Physicians (CHEST) and other organizations on the evaluation of PH and diagnosis of PAH. 2 - 4 Th e recom- mendations in this guideline are for the treatment of patients with PAH and should not be applied to the treatment of patients with other types of PH.

65. Bankruptcy, medical insurance, and a law with unintended consequences. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Bankruptcy, medical insurance, and a law with unintended consequences. Congress passed the Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (EMTALA) in 1986, guaranteeing a standard of medical care to anyone who entered an emergency room. This guarantee made default a more reliable substitute for medical insurance. I construct a tractable structural model of the medical insurance market and find that repealing EMTALA would increase the fraction of the population with insurance while decreasing

. During the procedure, while the patient is under anesthesia, these drugs are usually not needed. Following surgery, if the endotracheal tube is still present, the inhaled medication can be continued. Optimization of treatment for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is critical, and some patients require an increase in their steroid dose for 1-2 weeks preoperatively. Consider preoperative bronchodilator therapy in those with a forced vital capacity of less than 1 L or a forced expiratory volume in 1 (...) . Many medications must be continued through the perioperative period, with the last dose taken with a sip of clear liquid up to 2 hours prior to the procedure, and resumed during recovery. Other drugs must be stopped, replaced, or temporarily administered by another route. Obtain advice on selecting alternative treatments from clinical or drug information pharmacists. Additional monitoring of the patient or plasma drug concentrations may be required when different treatments or formulations are used

facilities may lack necessary resources or expertise, and the Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act (EMTALA) obligates tertiary care centers to accept these patients under those circumstances.
