Hypertension

Hypertension refers to the problem of abnormally high blood pressure. Normally, there are no outward symptoms of hypertension and it is found through a routine examination by a medical professional and diagnosed on finding blood pressure above 140 / 90 mmHg measured on both arms on three occasions over a few weeks. Pre-Hypertension is often defined by a blood pressure over 120/80.

There are three main types of Hypertension:
1. arterial hypertension which is an elevated blood pressure in the systemic circulation and includes pregnancy-induces hypertension in pregnant women;
2. pulmonary hpertension which is an elevated blood pressure in the pulmonary circulation;
3. portal hypertension which is an elevated blood pressure in the portocaval system.
