Pulmonary Hypertension is a serious condition that gets progressively worse. The song “Time Matters” by Joni Madden makes the experience of living with PH palpable.
PH is the broad, inclusive name for a group of several chronic diseases that affect the lungs and the heart. Some forms (or subtypes) of PH are rare as well as rapidly progressing, debilitating, and deadly. In pulmonary hypertension, the arteries that carry blood from the heart to the lungs narrow for reasons that are not yet entirely understood. The heart struggles to pump blood through the narrowed arteries, resulting in high blood pressure in the lungs and enlargement of the heart. Eventually, the overworked heart wears out, and heart failure and death can result.
Time is running away, cure PH.
