How COPD causes pulmonary hypertension?

March 18, 2022
Blood flow through the lungs becomes more difficult when the tiny blood capillaries in the lungs become thickened, constricted, clogged, or damaged. Maximum oxygen for COPD patients is mandatory. As a result, pulmonary hypertension (high blood pressure in the lungs) develops. 

During exercise, sleep, and exacerbation, pulmonary hypertension normally worsens. The main cause of increased pulmonary artery pressure in COPD lung disease is due to pulmonary vascular remodeling, which is hypothesized to come from the combined effects of hypoxia, inflammation, and capillary loss in severe emphysema.
