Pulmonary hypertension

Pulmonary hypertension is the most serious and common complication of pulmonary vascular disease, which encompasses any condition or disease that affects the lungs' blood vessels. 

In this section, we provide a brief outline for patients and carers on Pulmonary Hypertension (PH), how it is contracted, different groups of PH, treatment options and what it's like to live with the condition. We highlight places worldwide where patients and carers can receive support if they have recently been diagnosed or have been living with the condition for a long time.

Correct and early diagnosis is essential to identifying the most effective treatment, but one in five patients waits more than two years for a correct diagnosis. To support healthcare practitioners take a more in-depth look into PH, we have information on the clinical classification of PH, presenting symptoms, and clinical evaluation.
