Hypertensive Emergency

Complications of hypertension are clinical outcomes that result from persistent elevation of blood pressure. Hypertension is a risk factor for all clinical manifestations of atherosclerosis since it is a risk factor for atherosclerosis itself. It is an independent predisposing factor for heart failure, coronary artery disease, stroke, renal disease, and peripheral arterial disease. It is the most important risk factor for cardiovascular morbidity and mortality, in industrialized countries.

The various complications or manifestations arising due to high blood pressure include Hypertension Retinopathy, Primary Hypertension, Secondary Hypertension, Hypertensive Crisis, Gestational Hypertension, Ocular Hypertension and Epithelial Seizure in Children, Risk of Ischemic Heart Disease, Cognitive Impairment and Dementia, Hypertensive Nephropathy. 

Assessment of hypertension includes: Confirmation of hypertension, Risk factors, Underlying causes, End organ damage & Indications and contraindications for antihypertensive drugs.

Cardiac arrhythmia, also known as cardiac dysrhythmia or irregular heartbeat, is a group of conditions in which the heartbeat is irregular, too fast, or too slow. A heartbeat that is too fast - above 100 beats per minute in adults - is called tachycardia and a heartbeat that is too slow - below 60 beats per minute - is called bradycardia. Hypertensive crisis is a severe increase in blood pressure that can lead to a stroke. Extremely high blood pressure — a top number (systolic pressure) of 180 millimetres of mercury (mm Hg) or higher or a bottom number (diastolic pressure) of 120 mm Hg or higher — damages blood vessels. Ocular hypertension is a clinical term describing the presence of elevated intraocular pressure in the absence of optic nerve damage or visual field loss. The evaluation of patients with hypertension should be directed toward confirming true treatment resistance; identification of causes contributing to treatment resistance, including secondary causes of hypertension; and documentation of target-organ damage. Accurate assessment of treatment adherence and use of good blood pressure measurement technique is required to exclude pseudo resistance.
