|What is Pulmonary Hypertension?
Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is a disease in which the blood pressure in the lungs elevates. PH can lead to right heart failure if left untreated. PH is a disease that can strike anyone, regardless of age, gender or race. Because PH is rare and shares many symptoms with other conditions such as asthma, many patients are misdiagnosed. Without treatment, the average life expectancy with PH is less than three years.
||About PHA Canada
PHA Canada was founded to create a strong, unified Canadian PH community. PHA Canada provides leadership in awareness, advocacy, education and patient support on behalf of all Canadians living with PH.
