Hypertension, the medical term for high blood pressure, means that your blood pressure is constantly higher than the recommended level which is 140/90 mm Hg. Worldwide prevalence estimates hypertension to be a little more than 1 billion individuals. Hypertension results in 7.1 million deaths per year too. No wonder hypertension is termed as “silent killer”, silent because it is not usually associated with any symptoms and in a good majority of people it gets incidentally detected, years after its actual onset. Dr Tilak Suvarna, Interventional Cardiologist and Head of Cardiology from Asian Heart Institute helps us demystify the link between high blood pressure and heart disease.
