Abstract

This study focuses on cardiac patients' knowledge of high blood pressure. Blood pressure (BP) beyond 140/90 mm Hg is considered to be hypertension. It is closely linked to unfavorable conditions like heart diseases, renal disease and vascular diseases. Since there will be 1.6 billion adults affected by hypertension globally by 2025, It is anticipated that the difficulties in managing hypertension and preventing the appearance of these latter consequences would persist. According to projections, cardiovascular disease would account for the majority of fatalities and disabilities in India, killing 2.6 million people by the year 200, or 54% of all cardiovascular deaths.
