If you are interested in CPR, you probably are also interested in pulmonary hypertension. Pulmonary hypertension is a lung condition that happens rarely. The pulmonary arteries, which carry the oxygenated blood to the lungs have become narrowed resulting in a decrease in the distribution of oxygenated blood. This also results in a rise in the pressure of the blood on these affected pulmonary arteries above normal levels. This greatly affects the right lower side of the heart known to pump the blood which is the right ventricle. The right ventricle will expand. After some time of pumping, the right ventricle eventually weakens because of the strain given to it due to the narrowed pulmonary arteries and its expanded size. It has then decreased the ability to pump adequate blood to the lungs which may lead to right-sided heart failure known in medical terms as cor pulmonale.

The causes and risk factors:

  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Congenital heart diseases
  • Birth defects
  • Disease on the heart valve/s
  • Congestive heart failure
  • Pulmonary embolism
  • HIV infection
  • Chronic hypoxemia
  • Chronic lung diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
  • Certain medications (when it is caused by medications, it is called secondary pulmonary hypertension)
  • Apnea or sleep apnea

There are some cases when the cause is not known which also known as idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension is.

The signs and symptoms:

  • Difficulty breathing (early symptom)
  • Anxiety
  • Cyanosis
  • Ankle and or leg swelling
  • Pressure or pain felt in the chest
  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue and low energy levels
  • Protruding abdomen

Certain signs and symptoms such as chest pain and difficulty breathing often happen during exertion or even at rest.

Assessment and diagnostic tests:

During the assessment, the examiner will find abnormal heart sounds such as a heart murmur on the right side of the heart and normal breathing sounds during auscultation, pulsations over the breastbone, distended neck veins, swelling of the leg or ankle, palpable and enlarged liver and spleen.

The physician may order blood tests, chest X-ray, echocardiogram, cardiac catheterization, CT chest scan, ECG, nuclear lung imaging, lung function tests, stress testing, and echocardiogram

Pulmonary hypertension might not be regarded during its early stages since it may not bother the person that much or the assessment results might come as normal or close to normal. This condition usually takes several months to diagnose.

Treatment and management:

Pulmonary hypertension is not curable however the signs and symptoms can be managed to relieve and promote well-being. The main goal here is the prevention of more lung damage and to keep the remaining functioning lung tissue healthy. Measures are also taken to avoid the complications of pulmonary hypertension.

The physician may prescribe the following medications:

  • Ambrisentan
  • Diuretics
  • Calcium channel blockers
  • Prostacyclin
  • Sildenafil
