BLOOD PRESSURE

Blood pressure refers to the force exerted by circulating blood on the walls of blood vessels. NORMAL BLOOD PRESSURE Blood pressure is measured by two numbers. The Systolic Pressure (the "top" number) is the highest pressure inside your arteries, measured at the moment when your heart is contracting. It's the active part of a heartbeat. The Diastolic Pressure (the "bottom" number) is the lowest pressure in your arteries, measured while your heart is relaxing between beats.

HYPERTENSION Hypertension, also referred to as high blood pressure, HTN or HPN, is a medical condition in which the blood pressure is chronically elevated. CLASSIFICATION Hypertension can be classified into two: Essential (Primary) Hypertension: Essential hypertension indicates that no specific medical cause can be found to explain a patient's condition.

Secondary Hypertension: Secondary hypertension indicates that the high blood pressure is a result of (i.e., secondary to) another condition, such as kidney disease or tumors. Persistent hypertension is one of the risk factors for strokes, heart attacks, heart failure and arterial aneurysm, and is a leading cause of chronic renal failure. SYMPTOMS OF HYPERTENSION Headache Nosebleed (Epistaxis) Breathlessness Sleepiness, Ansomnia Confusion Fatigue Vertigo

MANAGEMENT Weight reduction: Obese people are found to have high blood pressure. A moderate reduction in weight loss brings about significant reduction in blood pressure.

Increased physical activity: Brisk walks and moderate exercises should be made a part of lifestyle. They condition the heart and keep the blood vessels healthy.

Limited alcohol consumption : Moderate quantities of alcohol(upto two drinks a day) are believed to be beneficial for hypertensive. However, excessive alcohol raises the blood pressure further.

Reduced salt (sodium chloride) intake: Sodium salts retain water in the body, thereby increasing the blood volume and raising the BP. Hypertensive patients are thus required to lessen the amount of sodium consumed.

Whole diets : Whole foods have high fiber content and lower the blood pressure.

Behavioral techniques, meditation and yoga: As stress is a known cause of hypertension, releasing stress by means of behavioral therapy, meditation and yoga etc can be beneficial.

Medical treatment: If the non medical methods fail to bring about the desired lowering of blood pressures, your doctor will recommend one or a combination of Blood Pressure Lowering medicines. Do not start or stop medication without consulting your doctor.
