Arterial hypertension as a problem of medical prevention

DOI: https://doi.org/10.29296/25877305-2021-01-03

Professor K. Amlaev, MD Stavropol State Medical University

The article contains information about the epidemiology of arterial hypertension and its pathogenesis. Attention is paid to the method of correct measurement of blood pressure, factors that determine its variability. Gender features of arterial hypertension and various variants of the course of the disease are considered. The necessity of lifestyle modification and correction of risk factors (obesity, tobacco Smoking, alcohol abuse, etc.) was noted.
