What Is The Meaning Of Transient Hypertension
Blood pressure : It is a high blood pressure event which resolves back to normotension, we all occassionally will have something that will cause it, like perhaps running into a grizzly bear on a hike..... If it happens a lot, chances are you need treatment for hypertension or anxiety. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
A blood pressure reading has two numbers: a systolic blood pressure and a diastolic blood pressure. The systolic blood pressure is the maximum pressure the blood exerts on the vessels when the heart is beating. The diastolic blood pressure is the pressure the blood exerts on the vessels in between heartbeats. Hypertension, or high blood pressure, begins when the systolic blood pressure remains above 140 or when the diastolic blood pressure remains above 90. Hypertension can be a result of increased blood flow through vessels or increased resistance to ...Read more
May be normal: If the elevated blood pressure is truly transient, it may just be "white coat hypertension", induced by anxiety or stress. Although not entirely benign, it is certainly less serious than persistent high blood pressure. Home BP measurements with a calibrated BP device, or better, ambulatory 24 hour BP monitoring, can sort it out. Night time bps, if elevated, may convey greater risk. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Physiogic: If you are angery or stressed. Your body release a lot of hormone like Epinephrine which cause vasoconstriction and tachycardiac resulting in elevation of the blood pressure. There are other hormones cortisol that also come into play. Stage 2 meaning BP is above 160/100. You need to see your pcp as soon as possible to manage the underlaying primary hypertension. ...Read more
Yes: It depends on the size of the sodium load and your body's sensitivity to it. It may be several hours to several days. ...Read more
Heart failure : The heart consists of four chambers, left and right atriums, left and right ventricles. Left heart failure means the left ventricle fails to work, meaning failure to pump out the blood flow to meet the body demanding. It can be caused by cardiomyopathy, severe aortic stenosis or severe mitral valve regurgitation, etc. Essential HTN is opposite to secondary htn.That means no cause found now. ...Read more
It depends: Many factors play in to it but my best guess is that one's fight or flight response is activated based on the potential threat of what the "authority" might say or do. People are understandably feeling vulnerable when they see a physician and it is most common for patients not to be aware of this vulnerability and the feelings associated with same. ...Read more
Got dysautonomia when i stand my body overconstricts, could this cause a temporary pulmonary hypertension?
What are the causes of atrial fibrillation and can it be transient. I am a 60 yr old male with treated hypertension and elevated cholesterol.?
We don't really know: Af can be due to normal wear and tear as occurs in HTN and the aging process. Aging causes insertion of non-conducting tissue (scar) between normal heart cells which is bad. All old people get this but not all old people get af. Why? We know that nests of cells fire crazily at times triggering af. These nests are frequently located in pulmonary veins. But why, and what triggers them? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What actually happens when a person with hypertension takes sodium or potassium rich foods? Is the BP rise temporary or permanent?
What is differences between right ventricular hypertrophy & right heart failure; cor pulmonale & pulmonary hypertension? Do they hv the same meaning?
Related: Pulmonary hypertension leads to right ventricular hypertophy. If the hypertension is severe and prolongued, the hypertrophied right ventricle begins to enlarge out of proportion to it's thickness. That is called cor pulmonale. Subsequently the right ventricle begins to fail, the right ventricular end diastolic pressures rise over 20mmhg, the rv cardiac output gets compromised, legs, liver, abdswell. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Elevated BP: Hypertension is defined as blood pressure above 140/90 (either value). Normal BP is considered 120/80 with pre-hypertension as 120-140/80-90. For pre-hypertension recommendations include improved diet (low salt) and exercise with consideration of an anti-hypertensive medication. Hypertension can lead to problems such as heart attack and stroke and usually does not cause any symptoms. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Renal Failure&stroke: Problem is you usually don't notice anything. If hypertension persists untreated it can lead to renal (kidney) failure, stroke, heart disease, peripheral vascular disease, etc. At the very least, you can get your blood pressure checked in many supermarkets or pharmacies at their automated blood pressure machines. Desirable results would be less than 120/80 mm hg. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Many Factors: Hypertension can be secondary due to conditions in cardiovascular system like coarctation of aorta, adrenals or kidneys and renovascular(from renal artery stenosis) or it may be primary also called essential which may be due to genetic predisposition and made worse by life style like obesity, high salt intake, lack of exercise and smoking. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Hypertension: Hypertension has no definate etiology but there are several risk factors that can lead a person to become hypertensive.There 2 types of hypertension 1. Primary which has no etiology except Family Hx. Metabolic Syndrome, ObesitySmoking,Drinking,Inactivity. Secondary causes which include,Renal diseases like renal artery stenosis,Pheochromocytoma,Hyperthyroidism,certain medication. ...Read more
It depends: Some causes of hypertension are reversible, most are not because in 95% of the cases we do not know what causes the development of high blood pressure. I suggest you read the following article: http://www.Heart.Org/heartorg/conditions/highbloodpressure/preventiontreatmentofhighbloodpressure/prevention-treatment-of-high-blood-pressure_ucm_002054_article.Jsp. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
