Hypertension (High Blood Pressure)

High blood pressure is a leading contributor to heart disease, stroke, kidney failure and other serious and potentially deadly conditions. It is widespread, affecting at least a third of the adult population worldwide. Still, high blood pressure can be prevented or managed to avoid these deadly complications.

Resources for Health Care Professionals

The Health Education Resource Exchange (H.E.R.E) has several resources to support your efforts to measure and manage high blood pressure in your patients.
