High blood pressure significantly increases the risk of coronary heart disease, stroke and other diseases.The risk increases even at moderately elevated pressure, especially if a person smokes or has high cholesterol.

Typically, the following occurs: the blood vessels lose their ability to expand - blood flow is hampered.To support the circulation, the heart has to contract with greater force.As a result of wear and tear the artery, and the heart is experiencing congestion.

Many people with dangerously high blood pressure do not know it, because the signs warning them of the danger, as a rule, no.

As measured blood pressure

doctor determines blood pressure for two values.The upper number indicates "systolic" pressure - that in which the heart ejects blood into the arteries.The lower the number - "diastolic" pressure at which the heart fills with blood between beats.The US population blood pressure is higher on average than a man with good health.Strive need to ensure that blood pressure did no

t rise above the value of 120 to 80, that is, to a systolic value does not exceed the number of 120, and diastolic - 80.

Even if no symptoms of high blood pressure, to keep it in normal (betweenIncidentally, almost no trouble does not happen from the low pressure), we can recommend the following:

• check your blood pressure at least every two years;learn and record your performance.

If your doctor will prescribe medications, take them on a regular basis - they can literally save your life;If you pressure above 120 over 80 (both numbers are important), aiming to reduce it - the lower, the better;watch weight;exercise regularly;learn to cope with nervous tension;limit the intake of salt and sugar.

Regular physical exercise is not enough to prevent coronary heart disease, but appropriate type of exercise, of course, will benefit.As the number of studies, among those who exercise regularly and properly, myocardial infarction cases lower than among those who are not engaged, and if heart attacks in trained people and happen, then proceed easier.Any exercise will help strengthen overall health, help to monitor weight and relieves tension.Exercising a person begins to feel better in every way, looks better, he has a greater vitality.Exercise of a certain type can improve blood circulation, strengthen the heart, making it work more productive, help lower blood pressure, changing for the better part of the blood.

to stimulate the cardiovascular system, physical exercise must be "aerobic."This means that the large muscle groups should work rhythmically, leading the body in motion, but without the surge.

training program

Not long ago, experts have determined how much time you need to take physical exercise in order to achieve the protective effect.It turns out, you do not need so much.

There are three main principles that are easy to remember.

Train in a day or at least three times a week.

Train continuously for 20 minutes.

Train vigorously, but watch out for breathing.

When choosing exercise suggested to focus on those that bring you pleasure: otherwise you are likely to throw a class.Those who had not worked, particularly older people, or those with body weight more than normal, probably best to opt for walking.Regular brisk walking for a few months, could provide sufficient training.Then you can try pointensivnee exercise.So, a great exercise for the cardiovascular system is fast cycling, swimming, running in the warm-up pace.Before proceeding to the intensive type of exercise, we recommend nevertheless to discuss your plans with your doctor if you are over thirty-five, if you are overweight, if you had some trouble with the heart or circulation.


pulse during physical activity - the heart beats faster, not reduced to 60-80 times per minute, as usual, but more often because muscles need more oxygen.As the heart rate is easy to learn, not too big load.Or, conversely, do not need to add efforts to the training was really useful for the heart.

Immediately after exercise count pulse for ten seconds and multiply the number of beats by six.If the heart rate exceeds a safe limit is for you, slow down the pace, especially if you feel very tired.If the heart rate is much slower in

next time, you can engage in vigorous, while watching the breath and avoid fatigue.If the heartbeat is uneven or if you feel pain, chest tightness, immediately consult a doctor.

heart rate

border security during intense workouts age

20-29 years - 140 beats per minute.

30-39 years - 132 beats per minute.

40-49 years - 125 beats per minute.

50-59 years - 115 beats per minute.

To do this, you need to use the so-called "sobbing breath", ie. E. Similar to that which appears in people during mourning.Its something and recommend, as a rule.When you cry, air passes between the tense muscles of the respiratory tract, throat and lips, as if through a narrow slit, the exhalation is done as if with effort, the air passes under pressure exhale obtained long - up to 3-5 seconds.This should be done, and the exhalation, normalizing the high (or low) pressure.And when it was over, another second, continue to keep on their toes all the muscles of the airways.Then make a short - one second - inhalation mouth open.When inhaling, of course, all the muscles relax: a breath generally quite shallow, its depth varies according to the body's needs.After a short breaths once again - a long exhalation with muscle tension.The usefulness of this breathing is that at this time there is the maximum possible for the body's supply of oxygen to all the organs.Only under this condition, they can learn from the blood necessary for their normal vital functions of nutrients.

Normal blood pressure can be approximately calculated as follows: take a number of years the patient and add to this figure a hundred.When high pressure is not necessary to eat meat, beans, peas, eat less fat, sweet, fresh bread, replacing it with breadcrumbs;less drinking water, as it also increases the pressure.Instead of bread is better to eat rice, eat dairy products, especially yogurt and whey drink.

From folk remedies to help reduce pressure garlic, broth potato peels (1-2 glasses per day) and hawthorn berries.The berries are cleaned from the seeds, pour cold water in the evening (about two cups of fruit per 100 g), in the morning in the same water for long need to boil the berries and, strain and drink.

This is a key indicator of cardiovascular system and overall health.With his inadequate reduction of deteriorating supply of oxygen and other substances of the heart, brain and other organs, which directly affects the well-being and performance.

significant and sustained increase in blood pressure (BP) is dangerous because of the increased load on the heart, possible brain damage, kidney. blood pressure should be measured three times at intervals of 1 min.

Rules BP measurement:

• hand, which measure blood pressure, must necessarily something to build;

• hand should not squeeze the clothes;

• If hand circumference of the shoulder more than 33 cm, the cuff should be at least 42 cm;

• cuff should be strengthened at the level of the heart;

• the air to be let out of the cuff slowly - by about 2-3 mm per sec;

• the appearance of the first tone when listening to the ulnar artery in the pit or the first pulsating shock when probing artery systolic pressure corresponds ,

• disappearance of tones corresponds diastolic blood pressure;

• Only systolic blood pressure can be determined by probing pulse.

upper limit of normal blood pressure recommended by the Joint National Committee on prevention, identification, assessment and treatment of high blood pressure (USA, 1997) as part of an educational program on hypertension.

• the normal level of blood pressure should be considered as indicators:

• during wakefulness - does not exceed 135/86 mm Hg.Article .;

• during sleep - 120/75 mm Hg.Art.

• Lower limit of normal with the traditional blood pressure measurement is:

• for average daily blood pressure - 100/60 mm Hg.Article .;

• for the daily average - 98/58 mm Hg.Art.

In 1991, EO Brain and other published lower limits of normal blood pressure as a function of age and sex.

Men up to 50 years - 108/65 (daytime BP), 90/48 (nighttime BP)

Men older than 50 years - 108/68 (daytime BP), 87/50 (nighttime BP)

women up to 50 years- 100/60 (daytime BP), 84/45 (nighttime BP)

Women older than 50 years - 90/60 (daytime BP), 84/49 (nighttime BP)


is the level of blood pressure,in which marked the lowest risk of cardiovascular complications.

Meanwhile, half of people with high blood pressure do not know it.In such cases, the disease can reveal itself a disaster: myocardial infarction or stroke.Half of the patients who have found hypertension, treated on this occasion, and only half of them are treated successfully.

main risk factors contributing to the appearance of high blood pressure, are:

• a family history of high blood pressure;

• increased body weight;

• passive way of life;

• increased alcohol intake and smoking;

• increased intake of salt;

• taking certain medications, including birth control pills, steroids, decongestants and anti-inflammatories.

In many cases, an increase in blood pressure can be prevented.People with high blood pressure can be controlled by changing his lifestyle, and not to use drugs.

measurement of blood pressure at home is invaluable for monitoring health: blood pressure sometimes in unusual conditions, such as in a doctor's office, is overpriced ( "white coat hypertension").

If in the morning in a state of rest - after the 5-minute rest sitting - 2 or more times higher than the numbers respectively 140 and 90 mm, it is necessary to consult a doctor.

fact that high blood pressure is dangerous, known to many.But most people are facing it with its devastating effects.Even the most hardy and healthy body can not work for wear, he needs a rest.Kidneys, heart and other organs, as well as blood vessels, just not designed to maintain a constant pressure.Over time, hypertension can be quite thoroughly destroy the body and cause the appearance of many diseases.These include stroke (a stroke), coronary and heart failure, heart attack, kidney damage, aortic aneurysm, eye damage, and so forth.

Stroke (apoplexy). believed that hypertension is a major cause of stroke.First of all, high blood pressure contributes to atherosclerosis.In this disease, cholesterol, which is in the blood enters the artery wall.Over time this leads to the formation of cholesterol deposits.On the inner walls of arteries damaged easily formed thrombi (blood clots) that obstruct blood flow and may clog a vessel, particularly in the brain, resulting in stops of blood to a specific area of ​​the brain.Brain cells in this region does not receive oxygen and die.This so-called Isha-nomic stroke, which can be fatal.

bursting in the brain vessel can cause a hemorrhagic stroke.In this disease, the blood from the ruptured vessel enters the brain, and formed a hematoma, compressing the surrounding tissue.The result can be irreversible damage to the brain.People suffering from hypertension, it is more prone to hemorrhagic stroke.

Patients with increased pressure is episodic, more prone to minor strokes, reminiscent of ischemic stroke, blockage of blood vessels but is not fully or quickly dissolve clots.More harmless than ischemic stroke, mini-strokes still cause some damage to the brain.

Depending on which portion of the brain has occurred stroke lost certain functions (motor impairment, speech disorder and m. P.).

and Coronary heart disease and heart attack. Blood clots can block the artery, not only the brain but also arteries suitable for heart.Reducing the volume of blood flowing to the heart, and hence, lack of oxygen required for the heart muscle can result in a significant weakening.When clots are formed in the heart (coronary).arteries, the portion of the heart muscle supplied with these arteries can be lost.This is called a heart attack.When

killed a large portion of the heart muscle, or when it is strained for a long time, the heart loses its ability to properly contract and pump blood into the vessels.This condition is called heart failure.Heart attack and heart failure are very dangerous and often lead to death.

hypertension also increases the possibility of breaking the heart rate.This state is called "arrhythmia".In any type of arrhythmia increases the risk of blood clot entering the cavity of the heart and then into the blood vessel in the brain, which may also lead to ischemic stroke.This risk is compounded by the fact that almost half of men with high blood pressure is noted and increased blood clotting, and it promotes the formation of blood clots.In women, oddly enough, this factor is significantly weaker.

kidney damage. The kidneys are responsible for removing excess fluid and harmful substances from the body.They perform the function of filtering the blood passing through them.But high blood pressure can be damaged arteries that carry blood to the kidneys.As a result, the kidney will be less fluid and effectively remove harmful substances.The worst option is a complete cessation of kidney function.

High blood pressure can be doubly dangerous if the patient has or has previously been some kind of kidney disease.A vicious circle: high pressure complicates the kidneys and kidney infection can not properly fulfill its function, thus further increasing the pressure.

Aortic Aneurysm. constantly elevated blood pressure overstrains artery.Over time this leads to a weakening and stretching them.Sometimes these strains, called aneurysms rupture, resulting in very serious consequences.

when a blood vessel bursts in the brain, it ends with hemorrhagic stroke, which was mentioned earlier.

aneurysm of the aorta - the main artery that starts from the left ventricle of the heart - is fraught with the danger of not less.Over time, high blood pressure can weaken this vital artery, and even break it.Sometimes the wall of the aorta in a weak spot split (which is also very dangerous) - this is called "dissecting aortic aneurysm."This type of aneurysm can cause excruciating pain in the chest, stomach or back.

Lowering blood pressure reduces the risk of an aneurysm.

If the aneurysm is small, it is enough to just regularly seen by a doctor to make sure it does not increase and there is no need for surgical intervention.

Left ventricular hypertrophy .When blood pressure rises, the heart must work harder to push blood.As a result of its size increases - like biceps, when a person begins to exercise.If

heart wall is too increased, reducing the space inside the ventricle (heart chamber, from which the blood enters the blood stream).This condition is called left ventricular hypertrophy.

Increased cardiac muscle blood supply needs to be strengthened in order to stay healthy.
