HEALTH TEACHING

Good morning Mrs. Estrella, we’re student nurse Elaine de Leon and Mark
Aquino from UERM. We would like to discuss about high blood pressure also known as
hypertension.

A normal blood pressure ranges from a systolic pressure of 100 to 140 and it
diastolic pressure of 60 to 90.

Hypertension or High Blood Pressure generally means when systolic blood


pressure is consistently over 140 (systolic pressure represents the pressure generated
when the heart beats) and diastolic blood pressure is consistently over90 (diastolic
pressure represents the pressure in the vessels when the heart is at rest.

Usually, no symptoms are present. Occasionally, you may experience a mild


headache. If your headache is severe, or if you experience any of the symptoms below,
you must be seen by a doctor right away. These may be a sign of dangerously high blood
pressure called malignant hypertension or a complication from high blood pressure. You
may also experience tiredness, confusion, vision changes, crushing chest pain, heart
failure, and blood in urine, nosebleed, irregular heartbeat and ear noise or buzzing. Blood
pressure elevated systolic of 140 and diastolic of 90 at any single measurement is
considered as hypertension.

High blood pressure happens because of sedentary lifestyle, smoking, obesity, diet
(fat, cholesterol-rich and salty food), alcohol, and stress.

Also, certain complications may develop if blood pressure is not monitored and
maintained. These are the following:

Stroke --High blood pressure is the most important risk factor for stroke. Very
high pressure can cause a break in a weakened blood vessel, which then bleeds in
the brain. This can cause a stroke. If a blood clot blocks one of the narrowed
arteries, it can also cause a stroke.

Impaired Vision --High blood pressure can eventually cause blood vessels in the
eye to burst or bleed. Vision may become blurred or otherwise impaired and can
result in blindness.

Arteriosclerosis --As people get older, arteries throughout the body "harden,"
especially those in the heart, brain, and kidneys. High blood pressure is associated
with these "stiffer" arteries. This, in turn, causes the heart and kidneys to work
harder.
Heart Attack-- High blood pressure is a major risk factor for heart attack. The
arteries bring oxygen-carrying blood to the heart muscle. If the heart cannot get
enough oxygen, chest pain, also known as "angina," can occur. If the flow of
blood is blocked, a heart attack results.

Congestive Heart Failure-- High blood pressure is the number one risk factor for
congestive heart failure (CHF). CHF is a serious condition in which the heart is
unable to pump enough blood to supply the body's needs.

You can take steps to prevent high blood pressure by adopting a health lifestyle.
These steps include maintaining a healthy weight; being physically active; following a
healthy eating plan, that emphasizes fruits, vegetables, and low fat dairy foods; choosing
and preparing foods with less salt and sodium; and, if you drink alcoholic beverages,
drinking in moderation.

Hypertension is controllable with treatment. It requires lifelong monitoring, and


the treatment may require adjustments periodically.

A healthy diet may also reduce the risk of hypertension and the maintenance of a
normal blood pressure. Minimize salt, fat, and cholesterol intake in the body. Not only it
caused hypertension may also contribute to heart disease which may lead to hypertension.

Herbal medicine like GARLIC (BAWANG) has been used to lower cholesterol
levels in the body and may help lowering blood pressure. Garlic may be fried, roasted,
soaked in vinegar for 30 minutes, or blanched in boiled water for 5 minutes. Take two
pieces three times a day after meals. Take on full stomach to prevent stomach and
intestinal ulcers.
