Drugs for High Blood Pressure (Anti-Hypertensives)
Blood pressure is a term used to identify pressure rendered by the blood on the blood vessel walls, walls of the arteries and veins. It is considered one of the indicators of vital functions and biomarkers, i.e. a characteristic used to identify the condition of the entire human body.
The constant increase of blood pressure or as it is called by professionals, hypertension, is not a rare occurrence. In the majority of cases, it develops with age due to the overall wearing of all systems and organs and loss of elasticity of the blood vessel walls. But it can be caused by other factors.
There is also another disorder of arterial pressure, hypotension, or arterial pressure lowered below the norm. However, it is much less spread and not as dangerous as elevated arterial pressure that can cause a variety of heart problems and even fatality.
