What is PPHN?
Pulmonary Hypertension is both normal and required for a fetus, since the placenta is used for oxygen exchange rather than the lungs. But atbirth, a transition occurs, decreasing hypertension and increasing blood flow. Babies who do not make this transition are said to have PersistentPulmonary Hypertension of the Newborn (PPHN)
Babies with PPHN have difficulty circulating oxygen through their bodies because of constricted blood vessels in the heart and lungs.
Your baby may experience the following symptoms with PPHN.
