Pulmonary Hypertension is high blood pressure of the pulmonary arteries.
an inability of the blood vessels of the lungs to relax and open up normally after birth. Poor circulation through the lungs and poor oxygenation of the blood result. Respiratory therapy and inhaled or IV drugs may be used to relax the lungs' constricted vessels to help treat this condition.
Elevated pulmonary arterial pressure. A common method to define the severity of pulmonary hypertension is the pulmonary/aortic systolic pressure ratio: Severity Ratio mild0.3, 0.6 moderate0.6, 0.9 severe0.9 (Eisenmenger syndrome).
Condition in which the pulmonary arterial pressure is elevated to an abnormal level.
a rare lung disorder in which the arteries in the lungs have become narrowed, making it difficult for blood to flow through the vessels.
high pressure of blood moving into the lungs
A rare blood vessel disorder of the Lungs causing high blood pressure in the blood vessel that leads from the heart to the lungs .
The inability of the blood vessels in the lungs to relax and open following birth.
High blood pressure in the blood vessels of the lungs.
Elevated blood pressure in the pulmonary arteries from constriction; causes problems with the blood flow in the lungs, and makes the heart work harder. Jump to Top
Elevated blood pressure in the lungs...When the resistance to blood flow in the lungs goes up, the pressure in the pulmonary arteries also increases. The presence of pulmonary hypertension indicates either high blood flow, high resistance, or both. If left untreated, this can lead to heart failure, cyanosis, and eventually serious consequences including death. However, some patients tolerate elevated pressures in the lung arteries for many years.
Abnormally high blood pressure in the arteries of the lungs.
High blood pressure in the pulmonary artery that conveys blood from the right ventricle to the lungs. The pressure in the pulmonary artery is normally low compared to that in the aorta . Pulmonary hypertension can irrevocably damage the lungs and cause failure of the right ventricle. See the entire definition of Pulmonary hypertension
Abnormally high blood pressure in the arteries supplying the lungs that may be caused by a number of factors, including damage from fibrosis.
occurs when blood pressure in the pulmonary artery is too high, increased pressure within the lung causes the right ventricle of the heart to become enlarged and may result in shortness of breath, syncope (fainting), dizzy spells and heart failure.
A condition in which the pressure of the blood vessels in the lung is elevated, leading to strain on the right heart.
An increase in the pressure in the blood vessels of the lungs.
This means that the blood vessels in the lungs are unable to relax and open.
A condition of abnormally high blood pressure within the network of blood vessels between the heart and lungs that delivers oxygen to the blood and removes carbon dioxide.
Occurs when the blood pressure in the blood vessels supplying the blood to the lungs is too high. This increased pressure causes the right ventricle of the heart to become enlarged, and may result in fainting, chest pain and heart failure. Other possible complications include, embolisms, septal defects, mitral valve diseases, and chronic lung diseases.
In medicine, pulmonary hypertension (PH) is an increase in blood pressure in the pulmonary artery or lung vasculature, leading to shortness of breath, dizziness, fainting, and other symptoms, all of which are exacerbated by exertion. Depending on the cause, pulmonary hypertension can be a severe disease with a markedly decreased exercise tolerance and right-sided heart failure. It was first identified by Dr Ernst von Romberg in 1891.Romberg E von. Ãœber Sklerose der Lungenarterie.
