High Blood Pressure Overview

When the heart pumps blood into the arteries, the blood flows with a force pushing against the walls of the arteries. Blood pressure is the product of the flow of blood times the resistance in the blood vessels. High blood pressure is also called hypertension.

What makes high blood pressure important is that initially it may cause no symptoms but can still cause serious long–term complications. – taken from EmedicineHealth
