      Take-Away Points of the Presentation

      1. Think IPF when you hear crackles in the lungs on PE of patients >55 years old without history of CHF.

      2. Get hi-res CT to assess patients with progressive dyspnea and no history of heart disease.

      3. Refer early to IPF Center because early initiation of therapy improves outcomes.
