Table-1: Prevalence of perioperative hypertension
and its type in patients undergoing surgery.
The researchers found that adverse outcomes were independently predicted by the burdens of systolic and diastolic hypertension
. A continuous burden of systolic hypertension
(≥140 mm Hg) and diastolic hypertension
(≥90 mm Hg) independently predicted the composite outcome in survival models (hazard ratio per unit increase in z score, 1.18 and 1.06, respectively).
She said that MMM put spotlight on increasing access to blood pressure screening as potentially the most effective way to reduce hypertension
's adverse toll on health.
It is part of May Measurement Month (MMM) - a global awareness campaign initiated by the hypertension
society and league.
Aim of this study was to determine the frequency of pulmonary hypertension
in SLE patients of Pakistani origin using echocardiography which is non-invasive method and do not require specialized training and can be used in routine clinical practice.8 We want to make a comparison of frequency of pulmonary arterial hypertension
in SLE patients in Pakistan with rest of the world as severity of disease varies in different populations.
The medical practitioner said that primary hypertension
could be through inheritance or intake of too much salt.
They have shown that a decreased intake of sodium and increased potassium intake or both together may be effective in prevention or even treatment of hypertension
. Independent reports on serum sodium and potassium among Indian hypertensive population were lacking and hence the present study was conducted.
The findings, which appear in the American Journal of Hypertension
, suggest that older women who suffer tooth loss are more likely to develop high blood pressure (BP).
is a leading cause of mortality and morbidity worldwide.
is a condition called high blood pressure during which the arterial blood pressure raises to high level from the normal level (120/80 mmHg).
is an increasingly important medical and public health problem.
Pecker, Professor of Clinical Medicine in the Division of Nephrology & Hypertension
at Weill Cornell Medicine - New York said that the global burden of hypertension
-- high blood pressure -- is huge and growing.
