Advanced Treatment Approaches

Treating high blood pressure can take a multi-pronged approach including diet changes, medication, and exercise. Hypertension, or high blood pressure, is dangerous because it can lead to strokes, heart attacks, heart failure, or kidney disease. The goal of hypertension treatment is to lower high blood pressure and protect important organs, like the brain, heart, and kidneys from damage. Treatment for hypertension has been associated with reductions in stroke (reduced an average of 35%-40%), heart attack (20%-25%), and heart failure (more than 50%), according to research.                            

Because hypertension rarely causes specific symptoms, it is not identified until an individual’s blood pressure is measured by a physician or it causes a catastrophic complication such as stroke or heart attack.Accurate diagnosis by blood pressure measurement is essential. Many advanced treatment approaches and medications have been established for the treatment and management of hypertension that may describe this session.

The renin–angiotensin system (RAS) or the renin–angiotensin–aldosterone system (RAAS) is a hormone system that regulates blood pressure and fluid balance. Calcium channel blockers (CCB), calcium channel antagonists or calcium antagonists are several medications that disrupt the movement of calcium (Ca2+
) through calcium channels. Calcium channel blockers are used as antihypertensive drugs, i.e., as medications to decrease blood pressure in patients with hypertension. When blood vessels dilate, the flow of blood is increased due to a decrease in vascular resistance. Therefore, dilation of arterial blood vessels (mainly the arterioles) decreases blood pressure. Drugs that cause vasodilation are termed vasodilators. The wide variety of antihypertensive agents now available allows considerable flexibility in the pharmacologic management of hypertension. The newly available alpha- and beta-adrenergic blocking agents have added considerably to this flexibility.
