Blood pressure in the vessels allows you to effectively pump blood to distant parts of the body, providing a constant supply of oxygen to cells. Changes in blood pressure are considered a pathology, requires immediate intervention and restoration of the prescribed indicators. High blood pressure can be considered a real time clock bomb embedded in the patient’s body. The risk of strokes and heart attacks that can lead to disability or death increases many times. Patients suffering from hypertension, the pressure should be constantly monitored, keeping it within the prescribed norms. To achieve this goal, a number of drugs are used that normalize blood pressure indicators:
The reason for the increase in blood pressure may be diseases of the heart, liver, kidneys and blood vessels. When choosing a drug for the treatment of hypertension, it is advisable to use it in combination with a therapeutic effect on the root cause of the disease. Otherwise, the drugs will be directed to the short-term relief of symptoms. If the patient suffers from high blood pressure by more than 20% of the norm, he needs to have a medication with him that is able to quickly and effectively reduce the pressure to normal levels. Most drugs are available in tablet form, which simplifies their administration.
The first serious complication of the patient's condition can be a hypertensive crisis, which manifests itself in an increase in intravascular pressure to critical values. At the time of crisis, the pressure on the walls of the vessels increases two or more times, which can provoke a rupture of the vessel wall with a subsequent stroke or heart attack. The degree of danger of such a complication depends on the size of the vessel, which can lead to disability or death of the patient. Treatment of hypertensive crisis is carried out using intravenous administration of drugs. It is impossible to cure high blood pressure with just one “universal” tablet, and most drugs are aimed only at a short-term elimination of existing symptoms and do not solve the existing problem in the complex. The correct choice of drugs that normalize blood pressure, as well as the treatment of hypertension, is the sole responsibility of the attending physician, who will be able to choose the best option for therapy, comprehensively approaching the solution of the problems encountered in the patient's body.
