About this Course
Objective of the course: To be able to Diagnose and Treat Hypertension
Hypertension (HTN or HT) also known as high blood pressure (HBP), is a long-term medical condition in which the blood pressure in the arteries is persistently elevated.High blood pressure usually does not cause symptoms.Long-term high blood pressure is a major risk factor for coronary artery disease, stroke, heart failure, atrial fibrillation, peripheral vascular disease, vision loss, chronic kidney disease, and dementia.
Hypertension is of high risk with today's changing lifestyle.
The World Health Organization has identified hypertension, or high blood pressure, as the leading cause of cardiovascular mortality.The World Hypertension League (WHL), an umbrella organization of 85 National Hypertension societies and leagues, recognized that more than 50% of the Hypertensive population worldwide are unaware of their condition.To address this problem, the WHL initiated a global awareness campaign on Hypertension in 2005 and dedicated May 17 of each year as World Hypertension Day (WHD).
For an accurate diagnosis of Hypertension to be made, it is essential for proper blood pressure measurement technique to be used.Improper measurement of blood pressure is common and can change the blood pressure reading by up to 10 mmHg, which can lead to misdiagnosis and misclassification of hypertension.
