PURPOSE: Symptoms of fatigue are reported by patients with pulmonary hypertension (PHTN) Fatigue severity negatively impacts quality of life, psychosomatic health and may have multiple etiologies. Current management of PHTN focuses heavily on improvement of exercise tolerance and hemodynamics. However, understanding etiopathogenesis of fatigue in this disease is important, as one may be able to tailor-make therapies to improve this symptomatology. The aim of this study is to evaluate fatigue in PHTN patients as measured by the Fatigue Severity Scale (FSS) and its relationship to pulmonary hemodynamics.
