The second (diastolic) number represents the pressure in the vessels when the heart rests between beats.(WHO 2019). Global statistics indicate that only 50% of individuals with hypertension are aware that they actually have high BP and only 14% are controlled (about 8% in low- and middle income countries). The epidemiological evolution for hypertension is witnessed in emerging nations, will give clue to an progress in the incidence of blood pressure. Hypertension as a effect of amplified life suspense and the tension of suburbanization, which is developingspeedily in virtually all unindustrializednations.
