Abstract: The 6-minute walk test (T6) is used to assess cardiopulmonary diseases due to its prognosis capacity, easy performance and reproducibility. Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is defined and classified as a hemodynamic consequence leading to increased pulmonary arterial pressure and may result in right ventricular failure and consequent death. This case reports the prescription of T6 by the cardiology team at a university hospital as a means of physical control of a patient with HP, after the introduction and initiation of therapy.
