Pulmonary Hypertension (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
Close follow-up with the treating doctor is very important in patients with pulmonary hypertension. Routine monitoring of symptoms, signs, oxygen level, and blood pressure are important components of follow-up for pulmonary hypertension. Repeat echocardiograms or heart catheterizations may also be advised and performed to assess the stability of the pulmonary arterial pressure or other important clinical parameters.
