Pulmonary Hypertension

Pulmonary hypertension affects the arteries in your lungs and the right side of your heart. In pulmonary hypertension, tiny arteries in your lungs, called pulmonary arterioles, and capillaries become narrowed, eventually blocked or destroyed. As a result it is harder for blood to flow through your lungs, which raises pressure within your lungs' arteries. Your heart's lower right chamber must work harder as the pressure in your lung arteries increases in order to pump blood through your lungs, eventually making your heart muscle to weaken and fail. There are some forms of pulmonary hypertension which become worse upon progression and can be fatal. Also there are some forms of pulmonary hypertension which aren't curable. The symptoms of pulmonary hypertension in its early stages are generally not noticeable for months or even years but as the disease progresses, symptoms become worse. Symptoms for pulmonary hypertension include Shortness of breath, Fatigue, Dizziness or fainting spells, Chest pressure or pain, swelling in your ankles, legs and eventually in your abdomen, Bluish colour to your lips and skin, heart palpitations etc. This session aims to emphasize on the classification, signs, symptoms and treatments of the Pulmonary Hypertension.
