How do I know if my breathing issues are due to PH or caused by COVID-19?

How do I know if my breathing issues are due to PH or caused by COVID-19?

Symptoms of COVID-19 can be difficult to distinguish from your PH and from other viral infections, especially during cold and flu season. You know your symptoms and PH best. 

 

Are people with PH at greater risk for COVID-19 virus infection?

According to the CDC, there is no evidence to suggest that people with underlying health conditions are at higher risk of becoming infected with the COVID-19 virus. However, there is evidence that people with underlying health conditions, including all types of heart and lung diseases, have a higher risk of developing serious illness from the COVID-19 virus if they become infected.

A recent research study through PHA-accredited PH Care Centers (PHCC) suggests the risk of COVID-19 virus infection in PH patients might be similar that of the general population. However, outcomes aren’t well established for people with PH who contract COVID-19. Additional studies are needed to fully understand the impact of COVID-19 on PH patients.
