COPD and PH

Posted on April 04, 2018

Living with pulmonary hypertension (PH) and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) can be stressful because it challenges you to make changes in your life. Some members with COPD develop primary pulmonary hypertension, a condition in which abnormally high blood pressure develops in the artery that leads from the heart to the lungs. Starting a dialogue with others who know what you are going through is helpful in realizing you are not alone.

On myPHteam, the social network and online support group for those living with pulmonary hypertension, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. COPD is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are a few conversations about COPD:

I went to my pulmonary Dr. yesterday for breathing tests...

I have PH and COPD and will still be cleared for surgery!

I have PH and COPD and was able to walk on the treadmill and do chores around the house!

Can you relate?

Have another topic you'd like to discuss or explore? Go to myPHteam today and start the conversation. You'll be surprised just how many others may share similar stories.

Feel free to ask a question here.
