Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is life threatening disorder that gets worse over time, but right
treatment can help your symptoms, so that you can live better with the disorder. It will take some
planning, but numerous people who have it find ways to do things that they love the most.
Having pulmonary hypertension means you have high blood pressure that reaches from heart to
your lungs. It is totally different from having a regular high blood pressure. With PH, the tiny
arteries in the lungs become narrow or blocked. It becomes harder for the blood to flow through
them and that commonly raises the blood pressure in the lungs. The heart then has to work hard
to pump blood through the arteries, and this process results into weak heart muscles and
thereafter into a heart failure.
We at Vimhans PrimaMed Pulmonology & Chest Medicine Center specializing in the treatment
of the PH offer access to exceptionally trained physicians, research, nurse coordinators and
support staff, so that the patients could be cured under world class supervision.
