Pathway Hipertensi - Hypertension

Hypertension or blood pressure readings consistently above 140/90. This is a very basic rule for determining whether the reading is high or not. Of course, there is more to it than this. However, in its most basic sense, a reading is high when it exceeds these numbers. What about if the blood pressure exceeds just one of these numbers? This is where it gets a little dicey. So, let's get a little deeper into the subject. Systolic and Diastolic A blood pressure reading consists of two parts. The first part is the systolic reading. This is the top number. The bottom number is the diastolic reading. To an extent, the diastolic number is considered to be the more important one. Still, systolic numbers that run wild can also be very dangerous.

Some patients experience a mild or heavy, consistent headache, especially a pulsating headache behind the eyes. Dizziness and flushed/red face are also symptoms of hypertension. People with severe hypertension experience blurred or impaired vision and fits or black outs.

Other symptoms such as fatigue, nervousness, palpitations, racing or irregular heartbeats, chest pain suggest hypertension caused by other conditions. Bleeding in the retina, also known as retinal hemorrhage, or from the nose (Epistaxis) may be indicative of high blood pressure. Cramping in the leg while walking, excess perspiration, nausea, vomiting, frequent urination, shortness of breath and restlessness are other possible symptoms of hypertension. In rare cases, the high blood pressure may cause heart attacks, kidney failure or brain swelling, which can lead to drowsiness and coma. Disturbed levels of consciousness such as sleepiness and even seizures in severe cases of hypertension, may occur.

These symptoms may sometimes manifest in a patient with normal blood pressure also. If left untreated, hypertension can cause damage to the brain, eyes, kidneys, and heart.
