Hypertension, commonly known as high blood pressure (HBP), is a medical condition that, when left untreated, can lead to stroke, heart attack, heart failure, kidney disease and dialysis, dementia, blindness and various other maladies. HBP is very common in the United States, affecting roughly one in three adults. Since it usually has no symptoms or warning signs, HBP is known as the silent killer. Therefore, it’s important for everybody to get their blood pressure checked regularly and, if needed, to follow a proper plan to manage the condition.
The Hypertension Program at Mount Sinai St. Luke’s and Mount Sinai West employs the latest medical advances to offer patients cutting-edge blood pressure monitoring, comprehensive risk factor evaluation and appropriate care. Treatment involves lifestyle modifications and tailoring drugs to meet the specific needs of the individual patient.
