About Pulmonary Hypertension
Pulmonary hypertension is a life-threatening form of high blood pressure that is seen during the critical transport of blood to the lungs to be oxygenated. Pulmonary blood pressure reflects the pressure the heart exerts to pump blood from the heart through the arteries of the lungs, as compared to the more commonly referenced blood pressure that measuring force needed to pump blood throughout the body. Pulmonary pressure becomes elevated when pulmonary arteries become narrowed, blocked or destroyed, making it harder for blood to flow through the lungs, causing the pressure within the lungs’ arteries to rise. As the pressure builds, the heart’s lower right chamber (right ventricle) must work harder to pump blood through the lungs, eventually causing the heart muscle to weaken and fail.
