Pulmonary Hypertension
« on: August 16, 2012, 11:21:36 AM »
Pulmonary Hypertension is an increase in blood pressure in the pulmonary artery, vein, or capillaries which leads to Inflammation, valve leaking, shortness of breath, dizziness, fainting, and heart failure. All of these factors force the hearts right side to work harder to pump blood to the lungs. The right chambers may enlarge as they struggle to function,and blood is often forced backward through the tricuspid valve.
