Pulmonary Hypertension

What is pulmonary hypertension?

Pulmonary hypertension is high blood pressure in your lungs that affects the arteries in your lungs and the right side of your heart. As the pressure builds in your lungs, the heart has to work harder to pump blood through your lungs. This will eventually cause your heart to weaken and fail.

Some forms of pulmonary hypertension are serious conditions that become progressively worse, and sometimes fatal. Although some forms of pulmonary hypertension are not curable, treatment can help to lessen symptoms and improve your quality of life.

This is not heart failure, however pulmonary hypertension can lead to, or result from heart failure.
