The disease pulmonary hypertension is due to a remodeling of the lung vessels which results in a change of the exhaled air. This change is measurable with a so called capnograph. The investigators want to measure the breath from patients with and without pulmonary hypertension to detect a cut-off value for the diagnosis pulmonary hypertension.
Patients which have the probably diagnosis pulmonary hypertension and are older than 18 years are investigated. This patients will get an right heart catheterization and a measurement from their exhaled air.

Suspicion of pulmonary hypertension
At Patients with suspicion of pulmonary hypertension, which get a right heart catheterization, in the context of the study the exhaled air, precious the endtidal carbon dioxide (CO2), before or after the right heart catheterization will be measured through capnography.
Diagnostic Test: Capnography
Measuring of the exhaled air, especially endtidal co2, through capnography.
- Measurement PetCO2 [ Time Frame: At baseline ]Measurement PetCO2 by capnography at rest after or before a right heart catheterization, comparison of the parameter between patients with and without
- Establishing a cut-off [ Time Frame: At baseline ]Establishing a cut-off for the non-invasive diagnosing of pulmonary hypertension, which differs between patients with and without pulmonary hypertension and save patients without the disease before a dispensable invasive right heart catheterization
