What is the problem with a conventional high blood pressure diagnosis?
A conventional high blood pressure diagnosis in which only the blood pressure is measured is too inaccurate. It does not sufficiently take into account that your cardiovascular system is a hydraulic system consisting of blood pressure and blood flow. To better understand the comparison with a bellows: The blood pressure is the tension in the bellows, the blood flow is the air that escapes at the front. Both values result in the so-called vascular resistance, which is opposed to your blood flow. And this vascular resistance in turn regulates the so-called pressure control circuit, which distributes the blood in your body in a balanced way, as well as the temperature control circuit, which ensures a stable body temperature, which is also essential for your emotional state .
If only the blood pressure – without the equally important parameter blood flow – is measured and the underlying regulatory cycles are not understood, the resulting drug therapy is often not target-oriented and associated with side effects. We can avoid this in cardiopractice.
