Hypertension: Awareness and Accurate Blood Pressure Monitoring

There has been a steady increase in the number of people suffering from cardiovascular diseases. According to the World Health Organization, cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of death across the globe, and it leads to nearly 17.9* million deaths every year representing 32% of all global deaths. Of these deaths, 85% were due to heart attack and stroke. Therefore, it is extremely important to take necessary steps that can help reduce the risks of cardiovascular diseases.

Hypertension, also known as high blood pressure, is a condition where the force of the blood against the artery walls is too high. Hypertension is when your BP is above 140/90 and is considered severe if the pressure is above 180/120. Since the condition does not show any symptoms and is difficult to detect it is also called a “Silent Killer”.

Every year, on May 17th World Hypertension Day is observed to raise awareness about high blood pressure.

Theme of the year for World Hypertension Day is “Measure Your Blood Pressure Accurately, Control It, Live Longer!” This emphasizes the importance of monitoring blood pressure and taking steps to manage it effectively. A very small yet powerful step in managing cardiovascular health; keeping a check on your blood pressure and controlling it.
