Managing High Blood Pressure
This webinar is hosted by Cardiologist Dr Via Markides.
Around one in three adults in the UK has high blood pressure. In England, 31% of men and 26% of women have high blood pressure.
High blood puressure, or hypertension, occures when your blood pressure increases to unhealthy levels. Your blood pressure measurement takes into account how much blood is passing through your blood vessels and the amount of resistance the blood meets while the heart is pumping.
Narrow arteries increase resistance. The narrower your arteries are, the higher your blood pressure will be. Over the long term, increased pressure can cause health issues, including heart disease.
This webinar is hosted by Gynaecologist Mr Ian Currie.
