Does hypertension 180 explode blood vessel

 "High pressure is the systolic pressure, which refers to the pressure on the vascular wall when the heart contracts, when the ventricle injects blood into the aorta. If the value is higher than 140mmHg, it can be diagnosed as hypertension. The cardiovascular and cerebrovascular complications of hypertension patients are directly related to the increase of blood pressure. If the patient's high pressure is 180 mmHg, it may be complicated with cerebral hemorrhage, but not all people with high pressure greater than 180 mmHg can have cerebrovascular accident. Therefore, it is necessary to pay attention to the further increase of blood pressure when the blood pressure is 180 mmHg. At this time, we need to take antihypertensive drugs in time, monitor the fluctuation of blood pressure, and go to the hospital when necessary Hypertension 180 will burst blood vessels vary from person to person. Some patients with long-term high blood pressure of 180 mmHg or even higher, but without any

Hypertension: common hypertension drugs may help reduce the risk of colorectal cancer in individuals

In a study published in the international journal hypertention, scientists from institutions such as the University of Hong Kong found that a drug commonly used to treat hypertension may help reduce the risk of colorectal cancer. Angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor (ACE-I) or angiotensin II receptor blocker (ARB) drugs can be used to help treat a variety of diseases such as heart failure, hypertension or heart disease. These drugs can inhibit or block angiotensin, which is a molecule that can promote artery stenosis. Clinicians usually prescribe these drugs to patients with hypertension to help them relax Blood vessels, thereby lowering blood pressure. Based on the results of a large-scale study, the researchers found that taking these drugs may also help reduce the risk of colorectal cancer, the third most common cancer in the world and the second leading cause of death in cancer patients worldwide Leung said that the role of ACE inhibitors and ARBs in the development of cancer is
