Pulmonary Hypertension

Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a rise of blood pressure within the artery, vein, or respiratory organ capillaries, resulting in shortness of breath, dizziness, fainting, leg swelling and different symptoms. This type of hypertension that affects the arteries in the lungs and the right side of your heart, then it begins when tiny arteries in your lungs, called pulmonary arteries, and capillaries become narrowed, blocked or destroyed. This makes it harder for blood to flow through your lungs, and raises pressure within your lungs' arteries.

As the pressure builds, your heart's lower right chamber must work harder to pump blood through your lungs, eventually causing your cardiac muscle to weaken and eventually fail. Pulmonary hypertension is a serious illness that becomes progressively worse and is sometimes fatal. Pulmonary hypertension worsens over time and is life-threatening because the pressure in a patient's pulmonary arteries rises to dangerously high levels, putting a strain on the heart. There is no cure for pulmonary hypertension, but several medications are available to treat symptoms. The various complications to related to pulmonary hypertension are congestive heart failure, blood clotting, liver disease, Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, chronic bronchitis, HIV Associated Pulmonary Hypertension, and PH in Association with Sickle Cell Disease.
