Bronchitis and PH

This is the first time that I have had bronchitis. I also have mild PH. Is bronchitis related to my PH and does it mean that my PH is getting worse?

Bronchitis is the infection or inflammation of the wind pipes. It is not related to the PH and does not mean that the PH is getting worse.
