Critical illness pulmonary hypertension

Critical illness insurance, otherwise known as critical illness cover or a dread disease policy, is an insurance product in which the insurer is contracted to typically make a lump sum cash payment if the policyholder is diagnosed with one of the specific illnesses on a predetermined list as part of an insurance policy.

Continuous subcutaneous infusions

Remodulin is currently the only drug that offers a continuous subcutaneous administration option. A small pump about the size of a cell phone is used in this option. A small cartridge is filled with Remodulin and inserted into the pump. Thin plastic tubing runs from the pump to a small plastic cannula that the patient has placed in their subcutaneous tissue. SQ Remodulin is infused similarly to how patients on an insulin pump infuse their insulin. There is nothing permanently inserted into the patient. If the site falls out or becomes compromised a new site is started. The catheter is most commonly placed in the tissue on the abdomen but the upper legs, buttocks, and back of the arms can also be used.


Critical Care Nursing is an important part of Nursing with a focus of complete care of the patients. Journal of Intensive and Critical Care Nursing is a newly launched Open access, Peer-reviewed scientific journal which will be dedicated to promote the scientific community dealing with utmost care of critically ill patients in the area of Critical Care Nursing, Intensive Care Medicine, Emergency and Critical Care.
