Hypertension: a detailed study.
The most significant modifiable risk factor for global all-cause morbidity and death is systemic arterial hypertension, which is also linked to an elevated risk of Cardiovascular Disease (CVD). Though proper treatment of hypertension lowers the overall burden of disease and death, less than half of persons with hypertension are aware of their condition, and many more that are aware but are not treated or are treated insufficiently. The intricate interaction of environmental and pathophysiological variables, which have an impact on several systems, as well as genetic predisposition, is the aetiology of hypertension. Accurate standard Blood Pressure (BP) measurement, evaluation of patients' predicted risk of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, detection of target organ damage, identification of secondary causes of hypertension, and the presence of comorbidities, such as CVD and kidney disease, are all parts of evaluating patients with hypertension.Author(s): Alexander Jonah
