Default What is Essential Hypertension?

Hypertension is the medical term for high blood pressure. As the blood is pumped through arteries by the heart, high blood pressure is measured by the rate blood is being transmitted through the arteries. The more force used to get blood through the arteries, the higher the blood pressure may be. There are two general types of hypertension, with the first being essential hypertension or primary hypertension, the name given to high blood pressure without a direct cause. Essential hypertension is the opposite, known as secondary hypertension, and generally results as a symptom of a pre-existing condition.

A blood pressure measurement consists of two distinct numbers. The first or top number given is the systolic number and the second or bottom number is the diastolic digit. If only the systolic number is high in an individual, he or she is said to have isolated systolic hypertension. This is a common form of essential hypertension. Although, this type of high blood pressure may only be related to the top number, it is vital to remember that this does not make the condition any less dangerous to a person's overall health.
