high blood pressure in the lungs and the right side of the heart. Dr. Saurabh Sheel says there are many causes of
pulmonary hypertension, the most common of which is heart failure. – People could be born with
it, blood clots can cause it, sleep apnea can cause it, people who have chronic lung
problems, they can have it too. – [Adrianne] The good news is that Capital Regional Medical Center offers many treatment options. – First I would like to know what is causing the
pulmonary hypertension. If they have sleep apnea, I would like to treat the sleep apnea. If they’re low in oxygen,
they will need oxygen. There are some surgical procedures also which might help with
pulmonary hypertension. People are living longer with
pulmonary hypertension now. They are having a much
better quality of life now. – For more information, visit CaptialRegionalMedicalCenter.com. – [Announcer] Health
