How do you monitor your health at home?

We’d like to understand how many people with PH have home health monitoring equipment, how often it is used, and why.  

The findings will be shared with the UK’s specialist PH centres, enabling them to deliver the best possible care. The survey doesn’t ask for your name, so your responses will be anonymous.

Some questions (those marked with an asterisk) require an answer. Others may be skipped if they are not relevant to you. 

Please only complete this survey if you have PH and live in the UK.
