Background: High pulmonary hypertension is a progressive and life threatening disease that affects the pulmonary arteries and the right side of the human heart. The aim of this study was to evaluate the relative frequency of pulmonary hypertension in patients referred to the echocardiography unit of Shahid Rahimi Hospital in Khorramabad city 2020.
 materials and methods:In this descriptive-analytical study, 600 echocardiographs performed in the echocardiography unit of Shahid Rahimi Hospital in Khorramabad were studied and information such as demographic and clinical features were extracted; Data were collected using SPSS 22 software and statistically analyzed.
Results: Out of 600 patients who underwent echocardiography, 87 (14.5%) had pulmonary hypertension. Out of 87 patients with pulmonary hypertension, 71% (62 patients) were over 55 years old. Also, 51% (45 people) were women. About 56% (49 patients) had heart failure with decreased output fraction and valvular diseases. Among the demographic variables, a significant relationship was observed between age and pulmonary hypertension.
Conclusion: Due to the fact that this disease is more common in people with heart failure and older people, so diagnostic and therapeutic measures should be more sensitive than these people.
