India is on the brink of a cardiovascular disaster and needs remedial measures on war footing to control blood pressure (hypertension) levels, said Dr C. Venkata S. Ram, Director, Apollo Institute for Blood Pressure Management and Director, South Asia Region - World Hypertension League on the eve of World Hypertension Day (WHD). He noted that lifestyle changes and the use of technology and telemedicine could help Asian patients better control their blood pressure round-the-clock, especially during the crucial morning hours when Asian patients are more likely than Westerners to experience a surge in blood pressure.

High blood pressure does not go away by itself or evaporate. Normal blood pressure is less than 120/80 millimeters of mercury (mmHg).
The outlook for untreated high blood pressure is same as the outlook for untreated cancer. But, people often ignore the need for regular check up and visit a doctor only when the blood pressure shoots up. Financial and social costs incurred because of high BP are astronomical.

According to Dr. Ram, the definition of hypertension has changed this year.

Even when it is diagnosed, because high blood pressure causes no symptoms, many dont perceive the condition as serious, he said. "Blood pressure screening should be part of routine health checks available to everyone, to reduce the burden of disease on individuals and communities".
