What's the first thing you think of when I say viagra? Probably not the first thing I think of which is joshy. Because of his under developed lungs he spend much of his six months on & off a ventilator and nitric oxide for his pulmonary hypertension,a condition where the pressure in the blood vessel that allows blood to flow to the lungs remains abnormally high. In order to wean him they started giving him doses of viagra, why ? Viagra causes these vessels to relax and allow for improved blood flow and improved oxygen delivered to all organs. This is why viagra was invented for in the first place to help with pulmonary hypertension but men found it helped them in other ways as well.
