Hypertension is a chronic medical condition in which the blood force against artery wall becomes high which in term causes health problems. Mostly there are no specific symptoms of high blood pressure; it damages the heart, kidneys, eyes and circulation of the patient, so it is recommended by Doctors to do the regular check-up of blood pressure. Poorly controlled Blood Pressure increases the risk of heart disease and stroke. The impact factor of journal provides quantitative assessment tool for grading, evaluating, sorting and comparing journals of similar kind. It reflects the average number of citations to recent articles published in science and social science journals in a particular year or period, and is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. It is first devised by Eugene Garfield, the founder of the Institute for Scientific Information. The impact factor of a journal is evaluated by dividing the number of current year citations to the source items published in that journal during the previous two years.
