---What Is Hypertension? 

Ø Hypertension (HTN) is a chronic medical condition in which the blood pressure in the arteries is elevated

Ø High blood pressure (also called hypertension) is a serious illness that affects nearly 65 million adults in the United States. High blood pressure is often called a "silent killer" because many people have it but don't know it. Over time, people who do not get treated for high blood pressure can get very sick or even die.



--- Diagnosis     


Blood pressure readings are usually given as two numbers -- for example, 120 over 80 (written as 120/80 mmHg). One or both of these numbers can be too high. The top number is called the systolic blood pressure, and the bottom number is called the diastolic blood pressure.  ·  Normal blood pressure is when your blood pressure is lower than 120/80 mmHg most of the time.  ·  High blood pressure (hypertension) is when your blood pressure is 140/90 mmHg or above most of the time. If your blood pressure numbers are 120/80 or higher, but below 140/90, it is called pre-hypertension.
