What is blood pressure?
Blood pressure is the force exerted by the blood flowing through the arteries. Arteries are vessels that carry blood from the heart to the rest of the body.
Hypertension or High blood pressure occurs when the blood pressure in your arteries is elevated, and your heart has to work harder than normal to pump blood through the blood vessels. It is the number one risk factor for stroke, and a major risk factor for heart disease.
