On the occasion of World Hypertension Day, Hyderabad has called for a resolute effort to spread awareness on the need to control this problem. The Apollo Institute for Blood Pressure Management has advanced tools to accurately diagnose hypertension. The Institute has an automatic device to monitor and record blood pressure round the clock and provide entire BP profile.
Dr C Venkata S Ram, Director of Apollo Insitute of Blood Pressure Management says, “India is unfortunately being dubbed as the 'Hypertension Capital' of the world and is a major risk factor for heart attacks, heart failure, kidney failure, stroke-paralysis and loss of memory.”
“The Indian medical fraternity is gravely concerned about the impending threat of Blood Pressure overwhelming the Indian populace and we as a nation being on the brink of significant health related repercussions including cardiovascular disaster, stroke, peripheral artery disease, chronic kidney disease etc.
This can be stemmed only through concerted measures to detect and treat hypertension effectively”, the doctor asserts. And further adds, “There are problems in effectively controlling High BP in India including non-compliance by patients in taking prescribed medicines regularly and stopping of taking medication once the BP level becomes normal under the notion that they are cured.”
