Hello and hope you are doing well.

Understand your predicament.
Idiopathic pulmonary artery hypertension (IPAH) in children is defined as a mean pulmonary artery pressure greater than 25 mm Hg at rest with normal pulmonary capillary wedge pressure, in the absence of associated causes of pulmonary hypertension. Treatment is focused on aggressive measures to prevent infections, medications to improve circulation and palliative surgical corrections.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
