Prolonged hypertension leads to the disease of left ventricle of the heart, and the aorta expansion. As a result, heart failure and ischemic heart disease develop. It is necessary to monitor blood pressure constantly.
Let’s try to understand what happens in the organism when the blood pressure increases.
The heart pumps blood at the optimum pressure, but the pressure on the walls of the vessels can increase for various reasons. Increased pressure can be caused by emotional excitement, and stress.
If the pressure has been high for a long time or has been followed by headache, dizziness, weakness, rapid heartbeat, it is necessary to get prenatal care and appropriate treatment.
High blood pressure is dangerous. It can lead to stroke. This disease is the violation of the process of brain blood circulation when brain cells die. If the brain arteries are clogged, the death of the part of the brain is inevitable (that is, stroke).
The faster you establish the blood supply of the brain, the more chances you have for a full recovery. It is important to carry out intensive therapy within the first three hours, otherwise you can lose efficiency.
The normal rate of blood pressure is 120/80 mm Hg. If it is higher, it should alert a person, since hypertension may develop.
In hypertension the heart suffers most; it has the main role – pumping blood through the vessels. In this case, it works in an intensive mode; the blood must be pumped through the narrowed vessels. This drive is to wear the walls of the heart, which increases the likelihood of development of myocardial infarction.
