Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension

Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension is no longer considered an orphan disease with so many therapies available now.

Cardiopulmonary exercise testing is performed to evaluate your capacity to exercise. It will assess how well your lungs, heart and muscles tolerate exercise and may assist in finding a cause for unexplained shortness of breath.

Your doctor may refer you for a lung function test to assess how well your lungs are working or to investigate respiratory symptoms, such as chronic cough or shortness of breath.
