There are many different types and subtypes of pulmonary hypertension, so there is no one way of treating patients who suffer from the chronic lung disease.

Find out more about the different types of pulmonary hypertension here. 

In this video from the Sri Lanka Heart Association, a panel led by Consultant Cardiologist Dr. Bhatiya Ranasinghe from the Colombo North Teaching Hospital talks about various pulmonary hypertension cases they’d recently treated.

The panel discusses the clinical diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment of three very different cases: a 32-year-old woman with scleroderma, a 35-year-old man presenting lung fibrosis, and finally a 42-year-old pregnant woman.

In this video, pulmonologists discuss some of the more challenging cases of pulmonary hypertension they’ve treated.
