Definition

Blood pressure is defined as the force exerted by the blood against the vessel wall. Normal blood pressure is 120/80 mmHg. The systolic reading (120) is the maximum pressure the heart is exerting during contraction. The diastolic reading (80) is the pressure when the heart is between pumps and is at rest. The diameter of the arteries and the amount of blood pumped through the arteries determines the blood pressure. The kidneys are responsible for the amount of water circulating in the body and the level of salt retained by the body. Increased salt levels cause more water to be retained and can cause blood pressure to increase. Systolic values in the range of 130-139 and diastolic values in the range of 85-89 are referred to as, "High Normal," however systolic values of 160 and over demand medical attention, as do diastolic values over 100. The Sixth Joint National Committee on the Detection, Evaluation, and Treatment of High Blood Pressure classifies hypertension as follows (Arch Intern Med. 1997;157:2413-2446):

OPTIMAL BLOOD PRESSURE: <120/80 mmHg
NORMAL BLOOD PRESSURE: <130/85 mmHg
HIGH NORMAL: 130/139 systolic/85-89 diastolic

HYPERTENSION:

Stage 1: 140-159 systolic/90-99 diastolic
Stage 2: 160-179 systolic/100-109 diastolic
Stage 3: >180 systolic/>110 diastolic

As blood pressure values increase, the risk for myocardial infarction, stroke, heart failure, angina and renal failure increases. High blood pressure is easily detected and can usually be controlled. There are two types of hypertension:
Essential Hypertension:
- Essential hypertension has no known medical cause and accounts for 90-9% of the patients diagnosed with hypertension.
Secondary Hypertension:
- Secondary hypertension is caused by another disease and is usually due to renal disease.
