‎Hypertension

Hypertension, also known as high blood pressure or arterial hypertension is a chronic medical condition in which the blood pressure in the arteries is elevated. This session mainly covers the different types of hypertension and their assessment. There are two primary hypertension types. For 95% of people with high blood pressure, the cause of their hypertension is unknown — this is called essential, or primary, hypertension. When a cause can be found, the condition is called secondary. Isolated systolic hypertension, malignant hypertension, and resistant hypertension are all recognized hypertension types with specific diagnostic criteria.

Assessment of hypertension basically includes: Confirmation of hypertension, Risk factors, Underlying causes, End organ damage & Indications and contraindications for antihypertensive drugs.

Hypertension is a major risk factor for heart disease and stroke. Globally, the overall prevalence of raised blood pressure in adults aged 25 and over was around 40% in 2008. Because of population growth and ageing, the number of people with uncontrolled hypertension rose from 600 million in 1980 to nearly 1 billion in 2008.The national Million Hearts initiative endeavours to increase the number of persons whose hypertension is under control, by 10 million, as part of its goal to prevent 1 million heart attacks and strokes by the year 2017.
