what is the pressure number in your pulmonary artery and left wedge pressure that means one has Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension? Also are those different in a skinny person and larger person. Thanks I have gotton conflicting statements and it is confusing me.
Thank you My right heart cath said My mean pulmonary pressure was 35 and pulmonary capillary pressure was 14. So I quess I do have Pulmonary Arteial Hypertension. One specialist said I did the other said that I did not because of my size. I was very confused. Thanks for answering my question.
