The classic definition of blood pressure is “ the pressure exerted by circulating blood upon the walls of blood vessels“. The main function of the heart is to pump blood into the arteries which carries blood to the various parts of the body.
Hence it becomes very essential to control blood pressure. Now, the question is how to control blood pressure?
What you think are the cause of change in pressure? Pressure can increase than the normal or also fall. High blood pressure is called hypertension and low blood pressure is termed as hypotension.
Both conditions are not advisable. But if we have to say which is the worst condition so in that case hypertension is more dangerous than hypotension.
When pressure is high heart has to work hard to pump out blood to the body. If this continues for long duration then it contributes to the hardening of the vessels, known as atherosclerosis’.
