Persistent Pulmonary Hypertension of the Newborn

Persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn (PPHN) is a serious condition that affects some infants’ oxygen levels after birth. The condition occurs when blood vessels in the lungs don’t open fully at birth.

The Pulmonary Hypertension Association’s free PPHN brochure addresses the prevalence of the condition, risk factors, treatment and recovery.
