Pulmonary Hypertension


Pulmonary hypertension is high blood pressure in the lungs' blood vessels.

It can cause damage to the blood vessels, lower blood oxygen levels, & can cause heart failure.

Although there is no cure at present for PH there are many medical treatments available.
These treatments can reduce the symptoms and greatly improve a patient's quality of life for many years.
For some patients, a lung transplant is an option.
