PH Stages: There are not any specific stages of pulmonary hypertension (ph); however, one of the several ways your doctor determines the severity of the ph is by assessing your symptoms using the new york heart association (nyha) score from 1 to 4.. Four is the worse and typically involves shortness of breath at rest.

PH Stages: Pulmonary hypertension (ph) does not have stages; however, the symptoms are often graded using a functional class system. Class i is little to no symptoms all the way to class IV which includes shortness of breath at rest and right heart failure.
