increase in blood pressure in the pulmonary artery, pulmonary vein, or
pulmonary capillaries, together known as the lung vasculature, leading
to shortness of breath, dizziness, fainting, and other symptoms)in order
to improve exercise ability. The drug relaxes blood vessels which are
able to transfer more blood and oxygen reducing pulmonary blood
