    Excuse me, but I work on the pulmonary unit of Duke hospital and I happen to thing that we do a darn good job. By the way our "average" pulmonary unit is the only unit on the east coast that you can receive Flolan for the treatment of Primary Pulmonary Hypertension, we also manage adult CF, COPD, asthma, S/P ARDS, pulmonary fibrosis, sarcoidosis, we also manage long term and difficult weaning from the ventilator. We also get extremely rare diagnosis such as ciliary dyskinesia and Wengers .
    We do all that including Flolan (except for vents) right down the street at UNC Hospital 6 Bedtower. We also are the infectious disease unit. Where did you get the idea that Duke was the only place on the east coast to receive Flolan? While Flolan does have it's own unique protocols I can't beleive it is that rare on the east coast.

    That's what my NM said during orientation. We also get multiple out of state admissions for initation of Flolan. I wasn't intending on putting any other unit down, the earlier poster simply angered me by what she had to say about pulmonary care at Duke. I don't speak for other hospitals or other units because I don't work there.
