Abstract:
he World Health Organisation (WHO) describes hypertension as “a condition in which blood vessels have persistently raised pressure”. If left untreated, hypertension can have detrimental effects on health and mortality, leading to preventable incidents such as myocardial infarction, heart failure, stroke and kidney failure. There has been a surge in the prevalence of hypertension worldwide, climbing from six hundred million in 1980 to one billion in 2008 and if appropriate action is not taken, deaths due to cardiovascular disease are projected to rise, according to WHO.
