Pulmonary Hypertension (cont.)

Pulmonary Hypertension Treatment

In general, the treatment of pulmonary hypertension focuses on treating the underlying cause and managing the symptoms. Early recognition of the disease and appropriate management of the underlying condition is important in order to slow the rate of progression to an advanced stage. Despite advanced treatment options, there is no a cure for pulmonary hypertension.

Self-Care at Home for Pulmonary Hypertension

Most patients with pulmonary hypertension can manage the condition at home with regular follow-up visits with their doctor. In cases of mild pulmonary hypertension with minimal or no symptoms, no special treatment other than those required for the underlying cause may be required.
