Abstract

A comprehensive description of the contemporary trends in pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) related hospitalizations, associated inpatient outcomes and predictors of worse outcomes were reported in our paper recently published in the International Journal of Cardiology [1]. Our observational analysis utilized ten year of national inpatient sample from January 1st 2007 through December 31st 2016. This Data in Brief companion paper aims to report the specific statistical highlights of the entire ten-year PAH cohort including demographics, hospital characteristics, regional variation, prevalence of comorbidities, and multivariable regression analysis used to examine the factors associated with increased inpatient mortality and prolonged length of stay. Additionally, we report trends in the cost (the actual amount of money reimbursed to the hospitals) of PAH related hospitalizations over the past ten years.
