Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com,
Hypertension is a condition where blood pressure is higher than normal. Hypertension occurs when systolic blood pressure exceeds 130 mmHg or diastolic blood pressure exceeds 90 mmHg when measured in calm individual conditions, not after physical activity that stimulates the work of the heart.
Hypertension can be divided into primary hypertension, where hypertension occurs without apparent cause or secondary hypertension, where hypertension occurs in the presence of underlying diseases / causes increased blood pressure such as kidney disorders, thyroid gland abnormalities, pregnancy conditions, vascular disorders, hypercholesterolemia, side effects drugs.
In the treatment of hypertension can use drugs through oral consumption (oral medication) or drugs intravenously (through infusions, can be used in hypertensive emergencies, unconscious patients, or in hospital treatment). There are various types of anti-hypertensive classes that can be selected as treatment modalities such as ACE inhibitors, Calcium Channel Blockers, Diuretics, Angiotensin Receptor Blockers, Beta-blockers. In the condition of hypertension that is experienced with comorbid asthma, it is recommended to use anti-hypertensive treatment of Calcium Channel Blockers because it has the effect of lowering blood pressure and also the effects of bronchodilators. Of course if there is a relative / you have this condition it is advisable to consult with a doctor or a specialist in internal medicine for periodic control, an examination and management is appropriate for this condition.
