High blood pressure is a major contributor to heart attacks and other cardiovascular events. When left unregulated, both blood pressure measurements can raise the risk of a heart attack or stroke. The force of blood flow in arteries, veins, and capillaries is referred to as blood pressure. When that force becomes excessive, it is referred to as hypertension, which is defined as a constant blood pressure measurement of 140/90 or more than 140/90 .The top figure represents the pressure in blood vessels while the heart beats and pumps out blood, while the bottom number is the pressure in blood vessels when the heart is at rest and filling up with blood. Dr Bipeenchandra Bhamre, Consultant Cardiac Surgeon at Sir HN Reliance Foundation Hospital and Research Centre in Mumbai elaborated, “High blood pressure stresses the heart and arteries. Years of untreated high blood pressure and the strain it exerts on artery walls generate sites for cholesterol to build up and solidify into plaque patches.”
