In 2018 I had an echocardiogram and the doctor said that the pressure in my lungs was mildly elevated. My cardiologist received the information from the other doctor and advised that I had mild pulmonary hypertension. In 2019 I saw him and no echo or anything was done. No one prescribed medication or advised anything I should do. I had another echo recently but do not know the results yet. When does a doctor normally prescribe medication or have you do anything regarding pulmonary hypertension? When I had the first echo,
Normal left ventricular size and systolic function (EF 60-65).
Normal right ventricular size and systolic function (TAPSE 20-21 mm).
No hemodynamically significant valve dysfunction.
Estimated RV systolic pressure is elevated (40-45 mmHg).
Your heart is pumping good. The pressures in your lungs are mildly elevated.
I am just wondering as I have been having more shortness of breath and fatigue in the past year or so. Thanks for any insight on this.
