What is group 3 pulmonary hypertension? | Dr. Indu Bubna | Pulmonologist in SBS hospital Andheri

Pulmonary hypertension as a result of lung disease PH caused by chronic pulmonary illness and/or hypoxia falls under this category (low oxygen levels). This is common in lung illnesses such as COPD, cystic fibrosis, and interstitial lung disease. It may also arise as a result of untreated sleep apnea. It might also happen to someone who has spent a long time living in a high altitude place due to the decreased oxygen content in the air. Lung arteries constrict, allowing blood to flow solely to parts of the lungs getting the most air and oxygen.
