Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a chronic, life-threatening disorder characterized by abnormally high blood pressure in the
arteries between the heart and lungs of affected individuals. Symptoms can range from mild breathlessness and fatigue during normal daily
activity to heart failure, severe reduction in exercise capacity and reduced life expectancy. PAH is one group within the classification of pulmonary hypertension (PH), responsible for approximately 260,000 hospital visits and 16,000 deaths in the U.S. each year.

Pulmonary hypertension is a potentially serious health condition that can lead to heart failure.

Symptoms of pulmonary hypertension include:

  • shortness of breath
  • fatigue (extreme tiredness)
  • dizziness
  • feeling faint
  • chest pain (angina)
  • a racing heartbeat (tachycardia)
  • leg swelling

Your symptoms may get worse when you exercise, which can limit your ability to take part in physical activities.
