High Blood Pressure

  • High Blood Pressure/Hypertension

    High blood pressure, or hypertension, increases the risk for coronary heart disease (heart attack) and stroke (brain attack).

  • Understanding Prehypertension

    Prehypertension is a term that alerts people to the risk of developing chronic high blood pressure if they don’t take timely steps to improve their lifestyle habits.

  • Primary Pulmonary Hypertension (PPH)

    Primary pulmonary hypertension (PPH) is high blood pressure in the lungs. It’s a rare lung disorder in which the blood vessels in the lungs narrow and the pressure in the pulmonary artery rises far above normal levels. Pulmonary hypertension is a chronic and life-changing disease that can lead to heart failure if it’s not treated.
