There a lot of facts that we already know about pulmonary hypertension, but unfortunately this heart and lung condition still has a lot of mystery surrounding it. Since pulmonary hypertension has similar symptoms to other lung conditions such as asthma, it is often difficult to diagnose, leading patients to suffer from it for years until they get an accurate diagnosis.

Here is some useful information about how pulmonary hypertension can be diagnosed.

In this video, shared by Ochsner Health System in 2015, listen to Dr. Stacy Mandras, cardiologist at Ochsner Health System, talk about why she decided to become a doctor after her father was diagnosed with colon cancer and her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer when she was a very young girl, and why she decided to dedicate her life to cardiology and her interest in pulmonary hypertension. Dr. Mandras also discusses what pulmonary hypertension is and the signs and symptoms to look for.
