$ 165.00

Blood pressure is the pressure of blood pushing against the walls of one’s arteries, which carry blood from the heart to other parts of the body. This typically fluctuates throughout the day, depending on activities. Hypertension, or high blood pressure, is when blood pressure is consistently measured above normal, and can lead to other health problems such as heart disease, heart attack, and stroke. One in four men and one in five women have hypertension, and it is a major cause of premature death worldwide. This volume explores the causes, effects, and treatments of hypertension, including the latest developments, techniques, and technologies in preventing and treating the condition.
