Blutdruckmessung

High blood pressure – scientific holistic diagnostics & therapy

High blood pressure is widespread: 32.4 percent of all people over the age of 20 in Germany have it – and many do not know. In about 95 percent of all people with high blood pressure, however, there is more than one clear physical cause – it is called primary hypertension. In order to get to the bottom of the cause, a very precise diagnosis is required. At Cardiopraxis we have outstanding and modern tests to assess the different causes and mechanisms of arterial hypertension.

You have an elevated blood pressure if your resting values are above 140/90 mmHg when measured in our practice or more than 135/85 mmHg at home. High blood pressure can have a variety of effects on the body:
For example, in the short term due to shortness of breath, impaired performance, headache and chest pressure, in the long term even due to organ damage in the heart, brain, eye and kidneys. It is not without reason that high blood pressure is also called the “silent killer”.

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.

What solution offers the holistic cardiovascular measurement of cardiopraxis?

With the help of various modern measuring methods, we can determine the processes in your cardiovascular system very precisely:

The complex results of this holistic and dynamic circulation measurement give us an accurate picture of how hypertension develops in you. We can treat these causes specifically with a therapy tailored to your individual needs. The goal must be: less medications – preferably none at all! In the spirit of partnered medicine, we are getting a whole lot closer to our common goal: your long-term health!

Arteriography

A arteriography is a special blood pressure measurement. Among other things, the measuring device calculates the central blood pressure of your aorta, which is in direct contact with the organs. The blood pressure here is often lower than in the upper arms. So if the blood pressure in the arms was used as the basis for a treatment, this can possibly lead to overtherapy.

The Arteriography provides information about this and can avoid overtherapy. It also records other parameters: the velocity of the pressure wave, the peripheral blood pressure on the arm, the slope of the pressure curve and the so-called systolic augmentation index.
Last value indicates the proportion of reflected pressure waves during blood ejection (systole). The more reflected, the higher the risk of hypertension.

How does an arteriography work with us?

The Arteriography examination takes about five minutes. the assistant places a special pneumatic blood pressure monitor on your arm. The device can derive the blood pressure in the aorta from this position. Comfortable and gentle – an invasive procedure is not necessary.

When do we do an arteriography?

Arteriography is mainly used in cardiopractice for differential diagnosis. Especially in people suffering from aortic valve disease (e.g. stenosis) or high blood pressure.

An increased systolic augmentation index may be present, for example:

  • bradycardia (e.g. beta-blocker therapy)
  • increased peripheral vascular resistance
  • increased filling volume of the arteries
  • Low body size
  • increased vascular stiffness
