  High Blood Pressure is the No. 1 Controllable Risk Factor for Stroke. Nearly half of American adults have high blood pressure, or hypertension. Work with your doctor to keep your blood pressure in a healthy range (under /80). Blood-pressure control: a comprehensive 'stepped care' approach (i.e. education, free care, specialist clinics, and protocols) achieves the greatest improvements in control.

Resistant hypertension is high blood pressure that does not respond well to aggressive medical treatment. Hypertension is considered resistant when all of the following are true. Someone is taking three* different blood pressure medications at their maximally tolerated doses.; One of the blood pressure medications is a diuretic (removes fluid and salt from the body). This rarest of the stroke subtypes has an important and interesting relationship with hypertension. Treatment of subarachnoid hemorrhage requires tight control of blood pressure in the beginning, but later, when vasospasm ensues, the opposite is true, with often intentional pressor-induced hypertension called for to avoid strokes.

Blood pressure (BP) is the pressure the blood exerts against arterial walls as it circulates through the body.

Therefore, an effective strategy for reducing HTN complications is increasing the number of patients who control BP (2, 3). Stroke is the third leading cause of death in the US and a leading cause of disability among adults.
