The PHCentral (PHC) is an Internet resource of information regarding pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) for patients, caregivers, and medical professionals. PAH is a rare, progressive disorder characterized by high blood pressure (hypertension) of the main artery of the lungs (pulmonary artery). Symptoms of PAH include shortness of breath (dyspnea) especially during exercise, chest pain, and fainting episodes. The exact cause of PAH is unknown. PHC provides many services, including guidance for newly diagnosed patients toward information and support groups; a forum for discussion of specific PH topics among patients, caregivers, physicians, researchers, and other health professionals; education, advocacy, and networking for patients and caregivers; support for treatment development and research to find a cure.
