You'd believe that a patient with hypertension, if you know you have hypertension or diabetes, you would take your drug every day. The compliance rate is more like 30% or 40%. Which means that 60% of patients don't take their drugs, and they actually go into these crises, end up in the hospital.

WHAT DOES HYPERTENSION MEAN IN ENGLISH?

hypertension

Hypertension

Hypertension or high blood pressure, sometimes called arterial hypertension, is a chronic medical condition in which the blood pressure in the arteries is elevated. Blood pressure is summarised by two measurements, systolic and diastolic, which depend on whether the heart muscle is contracting or relaxed between beats. This equals the maximum and minimum pressure, respectively. Normal blood pressure at rest is within the range of 100–140mmHg systolic and 60–90mmHg diastolic. High blood pressure is said to be present if it is often at or above 140/90 mmHg. Hypertension is classified as either primary hypertension or secondary hypertension; about 90–95% of cases are categorized as "primary hypertension" which means high blood pressure with no obvious underlying medical cause. The remaining 5–10% of cases are caused by other conditions that affect the kidneys, arteries, heart or endocrine system. Hypertension puts strain on the heart, leading to hypertensive heart disease and coronary artery disease if not treated.

Definition of hypertension in the English dictionary
