In brief: Pulmonary HTN (PH)

Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH) IS a diagnosis, which describes the symptoms associated with high arterial pressure in the lungs.
PAH is made worse by not wearing oxygen. There are many causes of PAH, including COPD or other chronic lung disease, multiple pulmonary embolisms (blood clots), recurrent pneumonia. Often it happens on its own - that's called primary PH or PPH. Treatment possible.
