Pulmonary hypertension means that you have high blood pressure in your arteries, and it is not just partial high blood pressure. In fact, it is not a typical type of high blood pressure. The correct classification of high blood pressure is essential hypertension and secondary hypertension. You can consider it as high blood pressure in your lungs, thus your heart should work harder to pump blood through those arteries to make sure that the heart muscle works.

Your heart has to work harder, but as a result, the heart muscle gets weak. Eventually, it can lead to hart failure. A lot of other illnesses can lead to high blood pressure in your lungs, such as congestive heart failure, blood clots in the lungs, HIV and even sleep apnea.     Related FAQ: http://healthtopquestions.com/?p=727 http://healthtopquestions.com/?p=681 http://healthtopquestions.com/?p=522 tags: pulmonary hypertension diagnosed, pulmonary hypertension guidelines, support pulmonary hypertension, pulmonary hypertension signs, treating pulmonary arterial hypertension, pulmonary hypertension medications, treatment pulmonary hypertension, pulmonary hypertension symptom, pulmonary hypertension treatments, do you treat pulmonary hypertension, pulmonary arterial hypertension, pulmonary arterial hypertension, pulmonary hypertension causes, treatment pulmonary arterial hypertension, pulmonary hypertension treatment
