Pulmonary Hypertension (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
Prevention of pulmonary hypertension may focus on reducing risk factors that may lead to the underlying cause. This is not always possible, especially in situations where the risk factors are not controllable. For example, some conditions, such as lupus, are not preventable. However, if it is diagnosed early and treated appropriately, the chances of subsequent development of pulmonary hypertension may be reduced.
