Subjects with PAH who are nil by mouth for any reason (eg, elective surgery or medical procedure, TPN feeding, gastrointestinal disturbance etc) may also be included in the study provided they are haemodynamically stable (see Inclusion Criterion 4) and the 6 hour period of blood pressure and pulse monitoring in the study does not interfere with any planned medical or surgical intervention.

Subjects who are willing and able to comply with scheduled visits, treatment plan and study tests and procedures.
Any subject receiving Revatio outside ('off-label') of the current Summary of Product Characteristics (SmPC).
