High blood pressure is well-known as the silent killer since it is the most common cause of cerebrovascular accident, myocardial infarction, stroke, and hemiplegia.
Indeed, high blood pressure requires not only a consistent long-term treatment but also a proper strategy to cure the disease. Some may persistently follow the doctor’s prescriptions and maintain a stable blood pressure at 120/80 mmHg for 2 to 3 years, yet unexpectedly experience cerebrovascular accident and hemiplegia after neglecting in using medicines for a few days. Others who follow the exact medical treatment plan and use medicines regularly still can be suffocated due to myocardial infarction.
Thus, what is the optimum treatment for high blood pressure diseases? How to perform an emergency support when a sudden high blood pressure incident happens? What are the effective ways to prevent high blood pressure patients from having cerebrovascular accidents and hemiplegia?
