Pulmonary Hypertension

3 posts in this topic

I know I have read it somewhere on this forum, but does anyone know what the pressures should be if you have PH?

 

Many thanks

Celia,

I found the following in the first article on the ISN Diagnosis of PH page.

 

"PH was defined as mean PA pressure > or = 25 mm Hg, or > or = 30 mm Hg after exercise."

 

Hope this helps.

 

Big Hugs,

One thing to mention, for those who may be new to this or confused by the similar terms, is that "pulmonary hypertension" is entirely different from regular "hypertension or high blood pressure".

 

Pulmonary hypertension refers to the readings of the pulmonary artery (the artery between the lungs and the heart) which is not related to blood pressure, which is commonly measured in the arm. For more information, see Pulmonary Hypertension.


Warm Hugs,
