Abstract

HYPERTENSION: AN OVERVIEW AND TREATMENTS

Diptesh T. Patil, Aditya Singh* and Dr. Vanita Kanase

ABSTRACT

Hypertension is abnormal high blood pressure, where diastolic BP is greater than 90mmHg accompanied by the elevated systolic BP more than 140mmHg. In 2010 hypertension was believed to have been a factor in 18% of all deaths. Hypertension leads to multiple organ damage; therefore the blood pressure must be controlled to prevent the organ damage. Hypertension can be controlled with antihypertensive drugs, in which diuretics are first choice of treatment. In modern times as new targets are identified, many new novel drugs are coming in market or in clinical studies. Alternative therapies are slow acting, but give better results over the course of therapy. It makes it important to combine both pharmacological and alternative therapies together to give better result and improved patient compliance with increase in patient satisfaction.

Keywords: Diuretics, Calcium channel blockers, ACE inhibitors, Angiotensin II Antagonists, Blood Pressure.
