There are several tests that a patient goes through to confirm primary pulmonary htn.
The process usually begins with an ultrasound of the heart (echocardiogram) to identify high pressure. Other test will include lung function tests, test for blood clots, blood test for a variety of diseases and ultimately a right heart catheterization must be done.
