High Blood Pressure - Diagnosis Could be a Life Saver

By NewYorkCardiacCenter Subscribe to RSS | May 31st 2012 | Views:

It has been estimated that almost 34% of population in the United States suffer from the chronic medical condition of high blood pressure, also termed as Hypertension. A silent killer, it affects the heart which has to pump the blood harder in order to reach the blood vessels. Hypertension or high blood pressure can be of either primary or secondary type. Primary cases have no underlying reason behind it whereas in secondary cases, it may be caused due to conditions that may affect the kidney, heart or the endocrine system. High blood pressure symptoms are not obvious, which is why this medical condition has been called the silent killer.

Generally, the blood pressure is measured in two numbers that are the systolic blood pressure figures and the diastolic blood pressure figures. Systolic pressure is generally associated with the contraction of the heart when the blood is pushed in to the body whereas diastolic pressure is that pressure which is in between the heart beats. Blood pressure is generally measured according to the column of mercury. The normal range of blood pressure is usually 120/80mmHg where 120 is the systolic pressure and the 80 is the diastolic pressure.

This brings us to an important question of what is high blood pressure. Anyone with a figure above 140mmHg of systolic pressure and diastolic pressure over 90mmHg is suitable for treatment for high blood pressure.

Dr. Steven Reisman, a New York City Cardiologist and Director of the New York Cardiac Diagnostic Center provide the perfect solution in the form of advanced automatic device for the diagnosis of high blood pressure symptoms. This timely diagnosis using the automatic device is useful as high blood pressure has various complications associated with it that may include the narrowing of arteries or atherosclerosis. It also increases the chances of stroke, heart attack, kidney failure as well as the eye damage. Another complication includes Aneurysm in which the main artery in the chest or abdomen may be weakened and in some cases may even rupture. It is important for an individual to undergo regular hypertension screenings.

This advanced automatic device called BpTRU measures the blood pressure of the patient without the need of any medical personnel in the room while it is being measured. It has been observed that in many cases, presence of medical personnel generally resulted in white coat effect in which the patients blood pressure may increase due to anxiety or tension. The automated device helps in accurate diagnosis and recording if there is high blood pressure and may prevent any complications that may arise in the future.
