It's PH Awareness Month!!! Once again, I plan on posting every day a fact about Pulmonary Hypertension. Last year I had some long posts, some short ones. This year, it's going to be just a fact about PH. I'm hoping someone out there will learn something!! Here goes!
Pulmonary Hypertension is NOT high blood pressure! It is a chronic lung disorder in which the pulmonary artery (from the heart to the lungs) is constricted, causing high pressures in the lungs. It can be life-threatening if not treated!
