Pulmonary hypertension is a specific type of high blood pressure affecting the arteries in the lungs and on the right side of the heart. As blood pressure builds in the arteries in the lung, the right side of the heart must work harder, which over time can cause it to become weak and fail. If left untreated, the condition can become life-threatening.
While there is no cure for certain types of pulmonary hypertension, symptoms can be reduced, further damage can be prevented, and quality of life improved through swift treatment.
At Texas IPS, our team of trained specialists will work with you to not only treat pulmonary hypertension, but also other medical disorders that may be contributing to the problem, such as obstructive sleep apnea, heart valve problems, and lung conditions.
Treatment for pulmonary hypertension can take many forms, including oral, intravenous, or inhaled medication, blood thinners, and oxygen therapy. Our team will work collaboratively with you to find the best treatment plan for you.

Although 16 million Americans have been diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, it remains remarkably misunderstood, even to some people already suffering.
Untreated obstructive sleep apnea presents very real threats: it can increase your risk of high blood pressure, stroke, and heart attack, and has been linked to cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and even glaucoma.
