In this eccentric video from Jennifer Janzer, we get to hear about pulmonary hypertension from a patient while she sits in the bath listening to 1940s music.

Find out more about the new treatments available for pulmonary hypertension patients.  

Despite the strange circumstances, Jennifer’s vlog covers many of the important facts about the disease, such as its prevalence, diagnosis, treatment options and how difficult it is to live with. She also explains that while there are 14 different medications approved for pulmonary hypertension, none of these have been approved for children living with the disease. Jennifer also touches on how expensive the treatments for the disease are.

Our resident columnist, Selena Lawrence, writes about what it’s really like to live with pulmonary hypertension.
