Hypertension is often known as the “invisible killer”. Generally speaking, patients do not have obvious symptoms in the early stage and this usually leads to delay or lack of treatment and may eventually lead to severe complications.
According to the definition by World Health Organization, hypertension is a reading of blood pressure greater than 140 (systolic pressure) over 90 (diastolic pressure) mmHg with repeated measurements when the person is at rest.
