A serious disorder characterized by high blood pressure in the lungs, pulmonary hypertension (PH) causes patients to experience symptoms such as shortness of breath, dizziness, fatigue, and chest pain.
While many of the approximately 20 million PH sufferers worldwide develop it as a result of other conditions, some people develop it for reasons that are not yet understood.
Duke’s Pulmonary Hypertension Clinic is a highly respected referral center for physicians and patients around the world, as well as an acclaimed leader in clinical PH research.
Our first-ever international database helps researchers identify and share important findings about PH, which will lead to improvements in diagnosing and treating it.
