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.

Depends: Depends on whether there is also an intact or open ventricular septum (vsd) and how quickly and effectively the pulmonary valve can be opened after birth, if necessary. There's no good "one answer" to this question without a lot more information about the specific case.
