Abstract

Pulmonary hypertension (PH) has long been recognized as a complication of chronic respiratory disease. Recent studies have highlighted the adverse impact PH has on the clinical course of these conditions and have cast doubt on the role of hypoxia in their pathogenesis. Clinicians should carefully consider the possibility of PH during the diagnostic evaluation of chronic respiratory disorders. The usefulness of pharmacologic therapy directed toward PH remains to be determined.
