What is hypertension?

In medicine, we call blood pressure greater than 90 / 130 as hypertension, and when blood pressure is greater than 130 / 180, we call it "hypertensive crisis" and "hypertensive emergency". As can be seen from the name, high blood pressure to this level is very urgent and dangerous. It can lead to stroke, myocardial infarction and heart failure. When the systemic arterial pressure fluctuates at 70 ~ 180mmhg, the kidney can regulate its own blood flow, but beyond this range, it can also cause acute renal failure.

Therefore, if the hypertensive emergency is not treated in time, it will cause serious damage to the patient's heart, brain, kidney and other target organs, and life-threatening!

It is not a case of hypertension emergency caused by not adhering to medication.

There are about 300 million people with hypertension in China. Each of us has friends with hypertension. We eat it once when we feel high blood pressure, and stop when we feel low blood pressure; It's common to eat once when you think of it, but not when you don't think of it.

If a friend with hypertension suddenly has blurred vision, dizziness and headache, nausea and vomiting, difficulty speaking, chest pain and other conditions, it may indicate an emergency of hypertension. Go to the hospital immediately.
