If you lined up all the blood vessels in your body, they'd be 60 thousand miles long. And every day, they carry
the equivalent of over two thousand gallons of blood to the body's tissues. What effect does this pressure have on the walls of the blood vessels? Wilfred Manzano gives the facts on blood pressure.
Q: A 56-year-old patient comes to your clinic, presenting with a blood pressure of 142/95 mm Hg. Would you describe this patient as hypertensive? If so, what three questions would you ask them in order to determine the cause of their condition? Why did you choose these questions in particular?
Please give detailed answer :)
