Hypertension is when blood pressure, the force of blood pushing against the walls of the blood vessels, is consistently too high. The systolic reading indicates the pressure that the blood exerts against the artery walls when the heart beats. The diastolic reading indicates the pressure that the blood exerts against the artery walls when the heart is resting between beats. In this course, we will review current trends and best practices related to managing hypertension for patients in long-term care facilities and in home health settings.
