Dialysed patients carry increasing risk for having Pulmonry hypertension (OR = 3) compare to predialysis. Anemia increase the risk for development of PH with an OR = 3.42. As the stage of chronic kidney disease increase the incidence of PH increase in which in stage V it reach 15 % compare to stage IV 3.75 % and lower in the other stages.
