Title: HYPERTENSION


1
HYPERTENSION
2
  • BLOOD PRESSURE As described in Session 3,
    brachial blood pressure should be taken in the
    seated position and recorded on both upper
    extremities. Keep in mind that emotional
    (nervousness, annoyance, etc.) and physiological
    conditions (fatigue, medication, other factors)
    can affect readings.

3
  • In any case of unusual findings, additional
    pressure checks and questioning of the subject
    are indicated. In every adult age group, elevated
    blood pressure results in greater risk of stroke
    and in developing congestive heart failure. Early
    detection and subsequent treatment can avert
    complications in the hypertensive patient.
    Unaware of the potential seriousness of the
    patients condition, physicians fail to properly
    evaluate the patient and simply commence
    treatment.

  • Most authorities define hypertension as diastolic
    pressures consistently greater than 100 mm Hg in
    a person more than 60 years of age or greater
    than 90 mm Hg in a person under 50 years of age.
    Transient elevation of blood pressure caused by
    excitement or apprehension does not constitute
    hypertensive disease. The diagnosis of
    hypertension should be confirmed on at least two
    additional office visits.

5
  • If the readings indicate hypertension, then a
    thorough clinical evaluation should be made to
    attempt to determine the extent of the
    hypertensive disease.

6
  • The disease is uncommon before the age of 20. In
    young people it is commonly caused by renal
    insufficiency, renal artery stenosis, or
    coarctation of the aorta. A sustained systolic
    elevation suggests atherosclerosis of the aorta
