Pulmonary Hypertension

Pulmonary hypertension is a type of high blood pressure that impacts the arteries in lungs and the right side of heart. In one type of pulmonary hypertension, modest arteries in lungs, called pulmonary arterioles, and capillaries become narrowed, blocked or destroyed. This makes it harder for blood to flow through lungs, and raises pressure inside the arteries of lungs. As the pressure builds, heart's lower right chamber (right ventricle) must work harder to direct blood through lungs, in the end causing heart muscle to debilitates and fail. Few categories of pulmonary hypertension are serious conditions that become progressively worse and sometimes become fatal. Pulmonary hypertension can lead to a number of COPD complications such as blood clots in the lungs, sickle cell disease and sleep apnea. Although a few kinds of pulmonary hypertension are not curable, treatment can help decrease symptoms and enhance quality of life. Pulmonary Conferences concentrates on the impact of pulmonary hypertension.
