Pulmonary Hypertension (Canada)

Women with hand to chest

Pulmonary hypertension is high pressure inside the pulmonary arteries, which are the vessels carrying blood from the right-hand side of the heart to the lungs.  While considered a rare disease, thousands of Canadians are affected by pulmonary hypertension and the prevalence is increasing. 

The Pulmonary Hypertension PSP will identify unanswered questions about diagnosis, treatment, and prognosis of pulmonary hypertension from the perspective of patients, caregivers, as well as policy-makers and clinicians involved in pulmonary hypertension care.
