Neonates who fail this screening test are then referred for comprehensive auditory evoked response testing or comprehensive otoacoustic emissions. More recently, inhaled, subcutaneous, and oral prostacyclin formulations have been developed as well as longer acting, room-temperature stable formulations.

This is because a volume overload will raise the end diastolic pressure. Insertion of an intrauterine device is another option; however, the rare side effect of a vasovagal response during insertion could result in cardiovascular collapse in a patient with PAH. This patient presented with a RV free wall dimension of 5.
