Hospital Information

The Wesley Pulmonary Hypertension Unit is a private referral-based service that began at the Wesley in 2008. Located in the Sandford Jackson Building on The Wesley Hospital campus, the unit assists patients suspected of having Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension and/or Chronic Thromboembolic Pulmonary Hypertension (CTEPH), and co-ordinates their treatment. Pulmonary arterial hypertension is a relatively uncommon disease of the pulmonary arteries that is characterised by a progressive increase in pulmonary vascular resistance. This basically means that the right ventricle of the heart gradually becomes overloaded which leads to right ventricular failure and a premature death. The Wesley Pulmonary Hypertension Unit is an expert service, providing education on the disease and available treatments to their patients and complete regular patient assessments to monitor their medication and progress. The unit also works in conjunction with the Wesley Research Institute in trials to help improve access to various medications for PAH and CTEPH.
