Hypertension Prognosis

Better information sooner for better decisions

Hypertension or high blood pressure means high
pressure (tension) in the arteries. Arteries are
vessels that carry blood from the pumping heart
to all the tissues and organs of the body.

www.ipgdx.com
Blood pressure is highest when the heart beats to
push blood out into the arteries.

When the heart relaxes to fill with blood again, the


pressure is at its lowest point.
www.ipgdx.com
Normal blood pressure is below 120/80;blood
pressure between 120/80 and 139/89 is called
"pre-hypertension", and a blood pressure of
140/90 or above is considered high.

The top number, the systolic blood pressure,
corresponds to the pressure in the arteries as the
heart contracts and pumps blood forward into the
arteries.
Systolic

The bottom number, the diastolic pressure,
represents the pressure in the arteries as the heart
relaxes after the contraction.

Diastolic

www.ipgdx.com
An elevation of the systolic and/or diastolic blood
pressure increases the risk of developing heart
(cardiac) disease, kidney (renal) disease,
hardening of the arteries (atherosclerosis or
arteriosclerosis), eye damage, and stroke (brain
damage).

There are 2 forms of High BP called essential (or
primary) hypertension and secondary
hypertension .

Enlarged Heart

Atherosclerosis
Essential hypertension is a far more common condition
and accounts for 95% of hypertension.

High blood pressure usually occurs without any
symptoms. Some people with uncomplicated
hypertension, however, may experience symptoms
such as headache, dizziness, shortness of breath,
and blurred vision.
Heart
Lungs:Shortness of blood
Liver: Tenderness and pain

Kidneys: Sodium and fluid Retention

Swollen ankles

Hypertension is a major health problem,
especially because it has no symptoms.
The 'prognosis' of Hypertension usually refers to
the likely outcome of Hypertension.

PrognostiCheck® measures the
Prognosis of patients with
Hypertension.

www.ipgdx.com
Prognostic scoring system( i.e phase angle)
objectively and accurately detects the presence
and severity of illness, the effectiveness of
treatment, the existing burden of illness, the
progression of disease and the timing of non-acute
death.

www.ipgdx.com
Phase Angle illustrates changes that occur prior
to those evidenced by cell counts, physical signs,
biochemical assays and imaging techniques. Its
value clearly complements the disease
management process, providing the physician
with valuable information sooner.

www.ipgdx.com
PrognostiCheck® is a proprietary noninvasive
measurement that depicts prognosis by
illustrating the plasma cell membrane and the
exchange between the intra and extracellular
matrices.
