Understanding Pulmonary Hypertension
In this video from MD Magazine TV, Dr. Stephen Y. Chang talks about how we can better understand pulmonary hypertension and how research has helped to unravel the mysteries of the disease.
Chang discusses the differences between hypertension (high blood pressure) and pulmonary hypertension (PH) and explains that although most people are aware of hypertension, very few people know about PH. He talks about the symptoms of pulmonary hypertension, probable causes, the prevalence of the disease, and how there is currently no cure for the disease, only treatments to help slow down the progression.
