How Is Pulmonary Hypertension Like a Zebra?
Pulmonary Hypertension is often misdiagnosed. Sometimes it’s confused with asthma, sleep apnea or COPD, because patients present symptoms like shortness of breath, chest pain, dizziness and fatigue.
But sometimes these symptoms indicate a different, rare and serious disease called Pulmonary Hypertension. PH is treatable, but because of misdiagnosis, many patients receive care too late.
