HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE Name: Tutor: Date: HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE High blood pressure otherwise known as hypertension is a common condition that occurs to many people. Statistics and studies show that people of all ages can be affected by high blood pressure including adults (Sui 2015) as well as children and adolescents (Luma Spiotta & Spiotta 2006). Understanding the nature of this condition explains why it is termed as the “silent killer.” What is High Blood Pressure? It is a condition considerably long-term in which the pressure of the blood within the blood arteries is considerably elevated (Naish & Court 2014). High blood pressure results from much mechanical stress on the walls of the arteries. When the pressure is high he workload of the heart is increased which leads to the progression of atheroma (an unhealthy tissue growth). This tissue develops in the arterial walls and hinders the flow of of hypertension. London: BMJ Books. ISBN 1-4051-3061-X. Poulter NR; Prabhakaran D; Caulfield M (22 August 2015). "Hypertension".
