Blood pressure is the force exerted by circulating blood on the walls of the body's arteries-the main blood vessels. Hypertension refers to high blood pressure. The blood pressure is recorded in two numbers. The first (systolic pressure) number represents the pressure in the blood vessels when the heart is contracting or beating. The second (diastolic pressure) number represents the pressure in the blood vessels when the heart rests between beats. If the systolic blood pressure reading of these two days is equal or larger than 140 mmHg and/or the diastolic blood pressure reading of these two days is no less than 90 mmHg when measured on two different days, hypertension is diagnosed.
Hypertension is known as the "silent killer". Most people with hypertension are not aware of this problem because it may not have warning signs or symptoms. Therefore, it is necessary to measure blood pressure regularly. When symptoms do occur, they may include morning headaches, nosebleeds, arrhythmia, vision changes, and tinnitus. Severe hypertension can lead to fatigue, nausea, vomiting, confusion, anxiety, chest pain and muscle tremor. At this time, you need to use a blood pressure monitor regularly to measure blood pressure.
Using blood pressure monitor to detect high blood pressure and reduce the pressure can prevent heart attacks, strokes, kidney damage, and other health problems. So how to prevent hypertension? You need to reduce salt intake (less than 5g per day), eat more fruits and vegetables, exercise regularly, avoid tobacco use, reduce alcohol drinking, limit the intake of foods with high saturated fat content, eliminate or reduce trans-fat in diet, manage pressure, use blood pressure monitor regularly to check blood pressure, treat hypertension and manage other medical conditions.

The World Health Organization (WHO) is supporting countries to reduce hypertension, a public health problem. In 2021, WHO issued a new guideline for the treatment of hypertension in adults. This guideline provides evidence-based recommendations for starting treatment of hypertension and recommends follow-up intervals. It also includes information on the goals to be achieved in controlling blood pressure and who can start treatment in the health care system.
