Hypertension occurs when the blood pressure of the arterial vascular system is permanently higher than the standard values set by the WHO. According to this definition, hypertension is present if the systolic value is above 140 mmHg on average and / or if the diastolic blood pressure (the second value on the measuring device) is at least 90 mmHg. "High blood pressure is often like a bomb that goes unnoticed for a long time and eventually goes off in the form of a stroke or heart attack. But how low should blood pressure be at what age?" These and more questions are answered in the special volume of the Heart Foundation.
All contributions were created by well-known cardiologists, psychotherapists and pharmacologists. The hypertension guide (88 pages) is available for three euros in stamps from: Deutsche Herzstiftung e. V., Vogtstr. 50, 60322 Frankfurt, keyword "special volume hypertension". The guide is free of charge for members of the foundation. (sb)
