Pulmonary Hypertension is an incurable disease that affects the lungs and eventually the heart. It causes the arteries in the lungs to constrict, becoming too narrow for normal blood flow from the heart to the lungs, creating high blood pressure in the arteries and stress on the heart. General treatment is oral medications and if that doesn't work, it's followed up with continuous IV medications all geared toward sustaining a patient's life until a lung and/or heart transplant can be performed.
