Pulmonary Hypertension

Pulmonary Hypertension is increased pressure in the pulmonary arteries it begins when

tiny arteries in your lungs, called pulmonary arteries, and capillaries become narrowed,

blocked or destroyed.

Symptoms are shortness of breath during routine activity tiredness, chest pain, and racing heartbeat.

As the condition worsens, its symptoms may limit all physical activity.

The heart has two sides, separated by an inner wall called the septum. PH has no cure.

However, research for new treatments is ongoing. The earlier PH is treated the easier it is

to control.
