High blood pressure or 'hypertension' is one of the most widespread and serious conditions in the developed world and many steps can be taken to monitor and manage your blood pressure.
Blood Pressure - all you need to know provides a clear, easy to understand account of the blood pressure, its control and how to measure it.
The book provides full explanations of what actually constitutes a high blood pressure and why and how it should be treated.
It also includes a discussion of low blood pressure, hypotension, and why it can also be dangerous.

Hypertension is very much a patient's disease - the more familiar you become with the theory and management of the condition, the more you will benefit from check-ups with your GP. This comprehensive, illustrated book is an ideal manual for the thousands of people who suffer from hypertension and members of their family who are keen to learn about the condition and how best to monitor it.
Nurses, GPs and medical students will also find it a useful source of information and a good guide on how to encourage their patients to take an active interest in their well being.
