Treatment & Therapy

Pulmonary hypertension is a disease that is treatable but not curable.

At your first appointment, your pulmonologist will talk to you about your medical history, perform a physical exam and order tests. This is a good time to ask questions about pulmonary hypertension.

Some questions you might ask are:

  • What could be the cause of my condition or symptoms?
  • How will my condition or symptoms be monitored?
  • What kind of tests will I need?
  • Are there any limitations or restrictions to my diet and physical activity?

Treatment goals

Through treatment and therapy the goal is to improve your quality of life, improve exercise tolerance, and improve survival.
