    Background Haemodynamic measurements may be superior to the 6-min walk distance (6MWD) as outcome measures in pulmonary hypertension (PH) as they are directly linked to the mechanisms of disease and are not subject to a ceiling effect. The aim of this study was to determine if treatment response...

Global hypoxic vasoconstriction increases right ventricular afterload. The hypoxic pulmonary pressor response is universal in mammals and in birds, but with...
