Pulmonary Hypertension is a disease affecting the arteries in the lungs, and can strike anyone at any time. As the disease progresses, a person’s heart can become enlarged, leading to potentially fatal consequences.
November is PH Awareness Month, and it is important Canadians learn more about the disease, as early diagnosis and treatment is crucial in delaying progression. If you, or someone you know, is experiencing unexplained shortness of breath, fatigue or dizziness, please speak to your doctor about being checked for pulmonary hypertension.
