Pulmonary Hypertension

Pulmonary Hypertension (PH) is an increase in blood pressure in the pulmonary artery, pulmonary vein, or pulmonary capillaries, together known as the lung vasculature, leading to shortness of breath, dizziness, fainting, and other symptoms, all of which are exacerbated by exertion. Pulmonary hypertension can be a severe disease with a markedly decreased exercise tolerance and heart failure.

According to the most recent classification, it can be one of five different types: arterial, venous, hypoxic, thromboembolic or miscellaneous. In most patients, pulmonary hypertension has an identifiable cause. Although there's no cure, treatments can reduce the symptoms of primary pulmonary hypertension, including shortness of breath.
