Hypertension affects up to 50% of adults. Many people with high blood pressure may not be aware of it at all until they develop after effects. We aim at preventing high blood pressure, by early dection and treatment to prevent complications.
We assess high blood pressure clinically as well as with an ECG, ambulatory blood pressure monitors and echocardiogram if required. Other investigations may be indicated to rule out treatable causes of high blood pressure.
Management: The majority of people with high blood pressure benefit from lifestyle changes and medications.
